Parking charges

We're introducing car parking fees at our car parks in Oldbury Court Estate and Snuff Mills.

These will be introduced during November or December 2021. We'll provide more updates here and at the Estate.

The fees will be:

  • £1 for up to 1 hour
  • £2 for up to 2 hours
  • £3 for up to 5 hours

If you want to stay longer than 5 hours, you can pay for extra hours. Charging will apply between 9am and 6pm, daily.

A number of waiting restrictions, including double and single yellow lines, are being installed in October on sections of several surrounding roads.

These parking management measures are being delivered ahead of charges coming in at the Estate to protect nearby junctions, driveways, and bus routes from obstructive parking.

View maps of the waiting restrictions:

There are two car parks, which are open from: 8am to dusk (Monday to Friday) and 8:30am to dusk (Saturday to Sunday).

Check signs at the car parks for exact closing time as this changes throughout the year.
