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 our Council office and from many shops across Pendle.

The short-stay car parks are patrolled on a regular basis. You might get a parking ticket if you:

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