Frequently Asked Questions

Will I make a saving by purchasing a season ticket?
As a season ticket holder, you are benefiting from greatly reduced parking in Stratford-upon-Avon. For example, an annual permit used an average of five days per week has a daily cost of £2.12. Considering the cost of parking for up to 24 hours is £22, that's quite a saving!

How long can I park in a designated car park with my permit?
Holders of a valid permit can park in their designated car park for as long as they please.

Can I park in any car park?
You will only be able to park in the car park for which your permit is valid. However, if you do wish to use another car park, you can pay and display (or use the pay on return system at Bridgeway Multi-Storey Car Park and Bridgeway Surface Car Park).

Does this mean that I am only able to park in one car park using my permit?
Yes, you will be asked to choose your car park when you apply. If you do not choose a car park then your application will be delayed. The car park that you have chosen will be printed on your permit and this will be the only car park that you can use with your permit.

Can I have more than one vehicle registration number on my permit?
You can register up to two vehicle registration numbers, which will be printed on your permit. Please note, you are responsible for ensuring that your permit is clearly displayed in the appropriate vehicle while parked.

Can I purchase multiple permits?
For season tickets only, yes! Other permits are issued as a result of a membership to an establishment etc. and only one permit per person is available in these circumstances.

What if I change vehicles or move house?
If the details provided on your application form change, you will need to complete a change of registration form.
