Three hour limited shoppers' car parks are provided within or close to the shopping centres to encourage customers to use the centres. Long stay car parks are sited a little further away for those using the town centres for long periods.

  • Charges apply to most car parks.  Further information about our town centre car parks in BeestonEastwoodKimberley, and Stapleford can be found online:.

  • Car parks are covered by the Broxtowe Borough Council Civil Enforcement Off Street Parking Places Order, which regulates their use.
