Introducing our new parking payment system!

Great news for our customers today…

We’re delighted to announce that our brand new parking payment system has launched today, making paying for parking quicker and more convenient for you on your visit to Vicar Lane.

The new system, which is managed and operated by REEF Parking, uses number plate recognition technology and allows you to drive in, shop, and then later pay for your parking at the machine by entering your registration number before returning to your car. The exit barrier will raise as you approach in your vehicle as long as the correct fee for your stay has been paid.

You can also pay for parking online at using the following location ID: 5091 or register for Autopay at for your ultimate convenience.

And the best news? Despite the upgrade to the system, all parking charges will remain at their current tariffs, which are as follows:

  • £1.20 for up to 1 hour
  • £2.00 for 1-2 hours
  • £2.60 for 2-3 hours
  • £3.80 for 3-4 hours
  • £6.80 for 4-6 hours
  • £15.50 for over 6 hours.

This tariff applies 7 days a week, 362 days a year* and includes disabled parking.

The Car park entrance is open from 7am – 6.30pm Monday – Saturday and 9am – 4.30pm on Sundays. The car park exit closes at 7pm from Mondays – Saturdays and 5.30pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
