New car park opening and parking charge changes

29 March 2018

An additional low-cost public car park will be available to motorists in Kendal from this weekend after we concluded an arrangement with Kendal Snowsports Club.

In addition, a number of new cheap all-day and ‘early bird’ parking tariffs at car parks we operate in Kendal, Windermere, Ambleside and Grange-over-Sands will also come into effect this weekend.

The car park at Kendal Snowsports Club at Canal Head will be available for £1 a day parking from Sunday, 1 April, adding 44 spaces plus two blue badge spaces close to the town centre.

For security reasons the ticket machine on this car park will be card only with chip and pin and contactless payment options.

The car park will available to all drivers seven days a week until 15 September 2018, and between 16 September 2018 and 19 April 2019 (Good Friday) it will be available to all drivers Monday to Friday. This is to accommodate additional weekend use by club members over the autumn/winter period.

Following a review of parking tariffs at other car parks in the district the following changes will also come into effect on 1 April 2018:

  • Sandes Avenue, Kendal: 20 pence per hour parking seven days a week up to four hours, and £1 for over four hours
  • Broad Street, Windermere: £1 a day ‘early bird’ on tickets bought before 9am will allow drivers to park in the designated ‘early bird’ spaces only
  • Lake Road, Ambleside: £1 a day ‘early bird’ on tickets bought before 9am (initial three month trial)
  • Hampsfell Road, Grange-over-Sands: £1 a day ‘early bird’ on tickets bought before 9am

All of these tariffs will be available to all car park users.

The current £1 a day ‘early bird’ tariff on tickets bought before 9am at the Westmorland Shopping Centre in Kendal will also be continuing.
