Rushcliffe Borough Council is responsible for a number of car parks across the Borough for use by shoppers, visitors and residents.
Information about our car parks we own
All car parks are patrolled on a regular basis by Civil Enforcement Officers and are clearly signed as either short or long stay. Car parks are covered by the Rushcliffe Borough Council Civil Enforcement Off Street Parking Places Order, which regulates their use.
A parking fine (known as a penalty charge notice or PCN) will be issued to vehicles that have not met the parking requirements of the car park. Each requirement (also called a contravention) has a specific code, observation time and level of charge. Please see the List of the off street codes for more information. Once a PCN has been issued, it cannot be cancelled by the Civil Enforcement Officer. There is a transparent appeals process if you would like to challenge the PCN.
Things to check when parking:
- Have you displayed your free voucher?
- Have you paid (pay-and-display ticket or RingGo)?
- Have you displayed your blue badge with the clock set correctly?
- Do you know when to come back to your vehicle?
- Have you parked within the lines?
- Is your vehicle the right height?
Holders of a blue badge can use any space within the car park providing they display their badge and correctly set the time clock.
The signs in each car park also list some of the common restrictions. For a full list of restrictions, please see the parking places order for each car park.
Users of these car parks do so at their own risk and the Council cannot accept responsibility for any accident, damage or theft occurring within the car parks.
Park Mark Award
The Council has been accredited for providing safe parking by the British Parking Association. Our high use pay & display car parks now carry the Park Mark Safer Parking award following rigorous assessments by police-trained assessors for vehicle and people safety. All car parks with the award can be identified by the distinctive Park Mark logo. For further information on the Safer Parking Scheme please visit the Park Mark website.
