Broxtowe Helps Promote A Positive Parking Experience

09/03/20 - Parking in Broxtowe town centre car parks is very popular and the Council hope that the range of free parking available attracts visitors to visit to shop, eat and enjoy all Broxtowe has to offer.

Broxtowe work hard to ensure the car parks are clean, tidy, well lit and provide a safe parking place for motorists and have recently been granted the Park Mark Safer Parking Award at 15 of their car parks.parking ticket

These car parks are patrolled by enforcement officers to ensure the smooth running of the facilities for visitors and for the safety of all users. Enforcement officers are available to help and assist visitors - please be kind as they are only doing their job!

To create a positive parking experience for visitors, please help Broxtowe Borough Council to help you avoid a penalty charge notice by using the helpful tips below:

Park in accordance with the signs and information boards – please carefully read all the signs before leaving the car park.

Observe your surroundings by parking within the lines– please don’t obstruct adjacent parking bays or park in disabled bays without displaying valid blue badge.

Stay for no longer than the expiry time on your Pay & Display ticket or free voucher – perhaps set a timer on your phone to ensure you don’t overstay the time obtained or maximum stay. Blue badge holders can park free for up to 3 hours in most car parks but charges apply after 3 hours.

Is your vehicle parked clearly displaying a Pay & Display ticket or free voucher?  Before leaving your car, please check that the enforcement officer can read it in full and it hasn’t slipped off your dashboard.

Take full advantage of the free 1 hour period in every council car park! Please remember you can only have one free hour per day per car park.

Insert coins or pay by phone – please don’t forget you need to pay if you want to stay beyond the free 1 hour period or blue badge free period.  Sometimes you may need a little longer for a meeting, appointment or another coffee!

Visit other town centres within Broxtowe if you can – most of their car parks have a free parking period and all town centres offer something different.

Enjoy your visit!  Taking a few minutes to check you have parked correctly in accordance with the parking regulations ensures your visit is a positive experience.
