Car parking charges on campus will increase by five per cent in the new permit year – beginning Sunday 1 September.
This increase in pricing is in line with rises in the cost of providing and maintaining car parks across our campuses. The average cost of parking remains below £1 a day.
From Monday 1 July 2019 car parking permit holders will be able to apply for 2019/20 full permits. These permits are for drivers parking on campus from Sunday 1 September 2019 to 31 August 2020.
For more details of the scheme, including how to apply, please refer to the ‘permit applications’ section of the car parking webpage.
You can also contact the security team for further information (telephone: extension 13557 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
In April 2019 the University’s Transport Group undertook a review of its car parking charges and recommended increasing charges by 5% from the previous year to meet the costs of providing car park across our campuses. This was endorsed by the Estates and Infrastructure Committee in June. New charges will come in to effect from Sunday 1 September 2019.
Car parking review
The Estates and Infrastructure Committee agreed that a comprehensive review of car parking should be undertaken to inform the University’s estate masterplan.
The comprehensive review of parking will consider options around future parking provision, technology and charging models to ensure the University’s sustainability, wellbeing, equality, diversity and inclusion objectives are supported and that the cost of car parking provision is adequately met in the future.
Before renewing your permit for the next year, you may wish to consider alternatives to driving to campus. The University actively promotes low-carbon, healthy transport options through a range of initiatives, including:
If you’d like to find out more about these travel options for getting to campus, you can request a personalised travel plan. The plan will look at options for walking, cycling, driving, bus, train and tram – all in a single document. The results will be emailed to you, with maps and step-by-step directions.
The plan also gives you access to an online tool to further explore and adjust the options.
If driving to campus is the only realistic option, then you may like to consider sharing your journey with others. It’s an easy way to do your bit to reduce both congestion and demand for parking spaces, and the University has a car share scheme specifically to help staff find others going your way.
