New parking rules


Parking charges of £2.60 for all University visitors – except a small number of VIPs – will be introduced on
April 1. Campus parking capacity for visitors is limited, but up to 600 visitors a day are attempting to park, making pressure on space unsustainable.

Every effort will be made to accommodate visitors on site, but space cannot be guaranteed. University staff and permit holders will take priority, and visitors may have to use other public car parks in the area.

Both national and local government policy is to cut commuter numbers and traffic, and the University is playing its part by formulating a green travel plan for staff, students and visitors. The traffic group, chaired by Pro-Vice-Chancellor for staff, Professor Diane Shorrocks-Taylor, is developing measures to increase use of public transport, car sharing, cycling and walking. These new measures require resourcing, and any revenues raised from the increased parking charges will be used for this purpose.
