COVID-19: Free parking for essential workers
We're offering free parking in all our car parks to essential workers who display valid ID/permit/key worker status. Charges continue to apply in these car parks for other users, but we're urging the public to follow the stay at home advice now in place across the UK and not to travel unless absolutely necessary.
