Reasons for introducing car parking charges

In 2020 it was brought to our attention that our parking situation really needed improving for the safety of our community, visitors and staff. Therefore, part of the recently implemented charges will go straight towards the upkeep of our site; fixing potholes, maintaining signage & fencing, landscaping, daily litter collection, keeping the nearby roads safe and maintaining public facilities at both our ticket office and Engine Yard retail village. We plan to extend our parking areas and implement parking bay mapping throughout, which the charges will also go towards. Additionally, we are working with Highways to develop better access and roads. 

We of course welcome our local community to enjoy our nearby walks, picnic in the surrounding area and enjoy the wonderful scenery that Belvoir has to offer, but we also want to ensure that car parking space is available at busy times for customers who visit to enjoy all of our facilities and support our independent shops & businesses. Importantly, we truly value our local customers that ‘pop in’ to pick up click & collect orders, weekly essentials,  last minute presents etc which is why we are offering two hours free parking and only charging after two hours.
