Low emissions discount

Where only one registration is displayed on an annual season ticket and this vehicle is in bands A to C for low emissions (less than 120 g/km), then we can issue a £75 reduction once we have seen the V5 document (logbook) for the vehicle. Contact the parking office if you require further details.


We also offer daily car park scratch cards, to use on any of our pay and display car parks. These are available to buy online. A book of seven scratch-cards costs £45 and each scratch-card is valid until 8am on the morning after the date scratched off.

For those who park regularly in the evening, we offer a book of 15 evening scratch-cards for £25.00. These are valid on any City Council pay and display car parks between 5.30pm and 8am the following morning. As with daily scratch-cards, simply scratch off the relevant information and display the card in your windscreen when parking.
