Car parks in Pendle

We have short-stay and long-stay town centre car parks, all of which are free of charge.

When using the short-stay car parks, you must display a disc showing your time of arrival. You can pick up a free disc from all Council offices and many nearby shops.

The short-stay car parks are patrolled on a regular basis. You might get a parking ticket if you don't park in accordance with the following rules:

  • You don't display a disc
  • You show a false time of arrival (the disc should be set to the nearest quarter mark)
  • You return to your car and alter the time displayed on the disc
  • You park for longer than the maximum time allowed
  • You re-park your vehicle in the same car park within two hours of driving away
  • You park beyond the bay markings (i.e. your vehicle occupies two parking spaces)


We don't provide parking for motorhomes because of height restrictions and design constraints in our car parks.
