Revised Car Parking Tariffs

In September of this year, we announced the intention to extend car parking charges in both Ferry Meadows and Orton Meadows to support continued development of the Park.


Following an extensive period of engagement with key stakeholders including local councillors, tenants, residents and local groups who might be affected by the new charges, we are today announcing the revised parking charges, which will come into effect from March 2016.


At present, car parking charges only apply between 10am and 4pm at weekends and Bank Holidays. The new tiered system will see charging apply at all times during Park opening hours (click here for details). At other times a flat rate of 50p per hour is payable. An annual car parking membership will also be available at a cost of £60 per year.


How the new system will work

Nene Park Trust is introducing a barrier-less pay on foot car parking system which uses Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology.

Charges apply all day, every day, with the charge dependent upon your length of stay.


You do not need to pay for parking on arrival. Number plate recognition cameras record your entry time and calculate the fee owed when you leave. No ticket is required. The system is being operated on behalf of the Trust by Park with Ease Limited.


You have the option to pay at one of the pay machines by entering your car registration number when you are ready to leave, or paying online up to 48 hours after your visit. Payment can be made in cash (no change given) or by credit or debit card at the machine, or online on Park with Ease's website at www.parkwithease.co.uk .
