Pay & Display Car Parks in Mendip
All pay and display car parks are chargeable 9am-6pm, 7 days a week including Bank Holidays and are chargeable all year round unless otherwise stated.
During the pandemic some NHS keyworkers can park free of charge with the Governments critical care worker permit. This is the only permit valid for free parking whilst on NHS business in Mendip District Council Car parks. The Governments critical care worker permit can be applied for from your local NHS Trust. If you are not eligible for this permit normal charges will apply. Eligibility is determined by your NHS Trust.
Festive free parking - from 17th December
There will also be free parking in all Mendip District Council pay and display car parks for a week period between 00:00hrs on Thursday 17th December 2020 and 23:59hrs on Thursday 24th December 2020.
All free car parks will be clearly signposted by Mendip District Council. Please note, although parking fees are waived, all other terms and conditions remain in force. They are there to ensure everyone has a fair chance to enjoy this offer, and the flow in car parks remains steady throughout the day.
To ensure everyone gets the most out of the offer please remember...
- Free parking does not mean free parking all day in short-stay car parks. Maximum time limits still apply - so please don't get caught out.
- Disabled parking bays are for blue badge holders only.
- Motorists should stay within the parking bay markings.
- Please don't park in hatched or lined areas, for safety reasons.
Penalty charges will be issued if people breach the conditions. However, there is an appeals process and each one is considered on their merit.
