Parking for Blue Badge holders

You can park for three hours for free on our long stay car parks providing you display:

  • a valid Blue Badge
  • your time of arrival on your front windscreen

If you want to park for longer you can either:

  • return to the car park and purchase a ticket to cover your stay
  • use MiPermit to purchase a pay and stay to start once your three hours has ended

If you're using a short stay car park

You can only park for the maximum time allowed. Check the maximum time at the car park you are at as this may be different for each one. There are boards in each car park outlining this clearly.
