Not sure how long you need to park for?
Try Check In and Check Out

Our new ticket machines accept multiple payment methods, offering users the most up to date and convenient service available. All our machines allow card payment users to 'Check In' when they park and 'Check Out' when they leave, paying only for the exact amount of time they stay. Simply follow the instruction screens when you visit the machine.

Please remember to check-out when you leave to avoid being charged for the maximum stay.

For information on how to use the pay by phone option on our new Pay and Display machines please visit the Ring Go website.

Our car parks

We own 16 off-street car parks, providing nearly 900 spaces in Diss, Wymondham, Harleston, Loddon and Long Stratton. Download a full list of the car park locations.

We operate pay and display car parks in Diss, Wymondham and Loddon.

Please be aware that we do not treat the surfaces of our car parks during cold weather.

We do not charge for parking in a designated disabled bay, if a valid Blue Badge is displayed.

Information on Disabled parking and Blue Badges can be found on the Norfolk County Council website.

Our car parking designations and charges have now changed. Car parks will now be designated as short term parking or long term parking with differing fees. 

The first hour of parking will still remain free (except in Loddon where the first two hours are free).

Criteria for permit holders

From April 3, 2017 we will be specifying the qualification for a residents car park permit. In order to qualify, you must have no parking facilities at your permanent address and that address must be within 500 metres of the car park in question. These boundaries and the streets they cover can be found below. Outside of this boundary, each case will be considered on its merits, but will generally be considered as a non-resident permit, requiring our Long Stay car parks to be used.
