Parking charges

New pay and display charges will come into effect on 16 May.

We operate a number of car parks in the city centre in addition to providing on-street parking.  

Our parking machines continue to accept cash but additional facilities to pay by chip and pin or contactless cashless payments are available. You can also pay by phone.
