Free parking for the three Saturdays prior to Christmas

As many residents will be aware East Staffordshire Borough Council has implemented free parking on all ESBC car parks for the three Saturdays prior to Christmas. This came into effect on Saturday 5th December. We apologise that the signage advertising the initiative was not sufficient at some of the locations, resulting in some visitors paying for their parking on Saturday 5th December 2020.

The council is inviting those who paid for a parking ticket, and can provide that ticket, to come forward to claim a refund. When these are received, we would be happy to provide a parking voucher to allow you to park at a time of your choosing for the duration of the parking time paid for.

To enable officers to facilitate this we would require you to provide a copy of your parking ticket purchased on Saturday 5th December, your name, address and full vehicle registration in order for the voucher to be produced and posted to you.

Should you wish to take up this offer please email your details with a scan of your parking ticket to the community.civil_enforcement@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk

Parking at the Coopers Square and Burton Place car parks in Burton and Maltings car park in Uttoxeter will be free between 3.00pm and 8.00am the following day.

All our Pay and Display car parks offer free parking to blue badge holders at any time and you can use any space available. Please note that car parks, with the exception of Burton Place rooftop, do not close. Burton Place rooftop has signs stating specified times when the gates are locked.
