We operate car parks, operate on street pay and display facilities, issue and control Parking Permits and issue Penalty Charge Notices as part of our Parking Services.
Car park winter maintenance
Our priority is gritting the strategic highway network. Other roads will be treated once the priority roads are clear. In particularly severe weather our teams may only be able to grit & plough our priority routes.
We will grit and/or plough the busier car parks that we manage as we treat the roads they are on. However, this does not ususally include the parking bays themselves. It is difficult for us to keep the surfaces completely clear of snow or ice and people visiting our car parks should be aware of this.
