As well as our car parks, there are several on-street locations in the vicinity of the town centre that offer short stay pay and display parking for a maximum of up to two hours.
Payment can be made via cash at the pay and display machines or cashless parking payments can be made via RingGo.
Where can you park?
On-street pay and display parking is offered in the following roads:

Charges apply between the hours of 8:00am – 6:30pm, Monday to Saturday. There is a maximum stay period of two hours and a no return for one hour rule in all of these locations. After the expiry of a pay and display ticket or RingGo session, the vehicle must leave the parking place – neither the pay and display machines or RingGo system will allow you to extend your parking until the one-hour no return rule has lapsed.
