Accessible Car Parking

There are 11 x disabled spaces dedicated to Shop Mobility customers on the lower ground floor until 5pm every day. These 11 spaces are available for all disabled customers to use after 5pm.

There are 5 x disabled spaces located on the basement level (not accessible after 9pm). Disabled spaces on Lower Ground Floor from 5pm and disabled spaces on the basement level do not require a blue badge and no parking concessions are available.

NOTE: No accessible access from the basement level after 9pm

Charging Points

We have 4 charging points available – there is currently no charge for using the charging points, but you will need to pay any standard parking charges during your visit. Once you have parked in one of the four charging bays, please ask a member of security if you require any assistance to set you up ready for charging – they can be contacted either at the kiosk next to the exit, or by using the help button at any pay machine. You will then just need a member of the security team to unlock your charging point before you leave and they can be contacted in the same way then.

Please note: Our charging points are currently unavailable for use – We are working on upgrading them – please keep an eye out for updates

Getting Here

Finding the car park is also simple with signposts on just about every main approach to the town just follow the “Buttermarket” or “Shopmobility” signs and drive in, a height limit of 6′ 8″ (2m) will allow pretty well all passenger vehicles easy parking.

Access

With both lift and stair access, using the centre could not be simpler or safer – whatever the weather.

When accessing the car park after the centre is closed, please ensure you use the pedestrian walk way provided

Safe Parking

On a safety note the park has won the coveted government backed secure parks award every year since it started in 1994. Well lit and benefiting from both security cameras and foot patrols the park offers you real peace of mind for both your vehicle and your personal safety.
