Car parking charges and opening times

General car parking information

This section contains information on the various car parks we own within the borough. You can view the locations of our car parks on our interactive map.

How to pay for parking

We operate traditional pay and display on most of the car parks where you can pay with cash or by phone. Most of our car parks also accept card and contactless payments. Read more about our payment options.


Motorcycles can park for free in any car park space on a council car park. In addition there is a motorcycle space on Corporation Street, and two spaces, with anchor points at Windsor Street car parks.

Electric vehicle charging points

We are adding electric vehicle charging points to a number of our car parks. In the first phase they will be added to car parks at: Goose Street town centre, King Street town centre, Heathcote Street Kidsgrove and The Parade Silverdale. We will provide more details once these are operational.
