Parking for carers

Permit applications for 2020/21 will open later this year.

Information on renewals and applications is available on our FAQ's page.

The Carer Scheme has been established to support our flexible working policy, enabling carers to find a parking space if they arrive after 9am, when car parks are at their busiest. This scheme is for carers who have a child under the age of 12, or an older dependent relative with a disability.

The Carer Scheme application form is available under Exceptional Circumstances.

Designated parking spaces are available before 10am on weekdays in the following locations:

  • P1 Science car park: 32 spaces
  • P3 Biology car park: 11 spaces
  • P4 Sussex House car park: 14 spaces
  • P7 Arts car park: 7 spaces
  • Lancaster House: 7 spaces

Carer spaces are not individually assigned, and are all openly reserved for all drivers with carer permits before 10am. These spaces are open for general use after this time.

As a courtesy to other carers, please use general parking spaces if they are available. Many carers may need to arrive later each morning, and may need the use of carer spaces once all other spaces are occupied.

We have extended the Carer Scheme for 2018-19, by increasing the number of available spaces to 75.
