Maps, costs, and information on when you can park in the Bower Ashton residents' parking scheme (RPS).

This scheme started on Monday 29 September 2014.

Where and when you can park

When you'll need a permit or a ticket to park depends on the area you’re trying to park in.

Permit parking area (PPA)

The parking permit area (PPA) covers almost all of the roads in the Bower Ashton RPS.

You’ll need a permit to park in the PPA at all times of day, every day except Christmas Day.

Shared use area: Kennel Lodge Road

There is one shared use area, located on Kennel Lodge Road.

Between 9am and 9pm, Monday to Saturday, you’ll need a permit or pay and display ticket to park in this area.

Outside of these times you can park in this area without a permit or pay and display ticket.

Bank holidays

You need a permit to park in the PPA at all times except Christmas Day.

For the shared use area on Kennel Lodge Road, on public holidays you don’t need a permit or a pay and display ticket to park.
