Car parks

Our seafront car parks are closed to meet the Government's restrictions to reduce non-essential travel https://gov.uk/coronavirus

Town and village car parks will remain open for use in line with the current guidance and charges have currently been suspended to help the large number of volunteers in obtaining essential supplies for those who are self-isolating or are vulnerable people. 

Parking clock sales have been suspended. Although refunds will not be given for current parking clocks, we are looking at extending the expiration date of the Clocks depending upon the duration of this suspension. 

Notices have been placed in all our car parks. 

Those parked in an NFDC car park unable to move the car and exceed the parking duration for reasons associated with Coronavirus, this will be treated with sensitivity if you need to contact us about any Penalty Charge Notice you may have received.

 

Advice on access to local open spaces

The government's priority is to save lives and the best way to protect yourself and others from illness is to stay at home. If you are leaving your home and exercising once a day, stay local and use open spaces near to your home.
