Shropshire Council

Free parking

31 March 2020 Last updated at 07:57

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic Shropshire Council car parks will be free until further notice. However, we do appeal to everyone, whilst using our car parks, to please adhere to the government and Public Health England’s advice relating to travel and coronavirus prevention measures, particularly self-distancing.

On-street parking charges will remain so that the parking bays can be used for those needing to have easy access to essential services in the town centres, especially for those who find it difficult to walk significant distances. The 15-minute ‘pop and shop’ free parking remains available for the very short parking stay.

Customers holding a current resident's permit or season ticket are advised that we'll review these at a time when face-to-face contact is permitted, and these will remain valid until further notice. If the permit expires you don't need to purchase another permit until further notice, and if you hold a paper permit please continue to display this in your vehicle.
