Dorset Council car park price changes from next week







From Monday 28 March, Dorset Council will be rolling out new car park charges in council-owned car parks across the county.

The parking transformation project started in 2020 to develop a more consistent approach to car parking charges across the Dorset Council area. This included a review of on-street car parking charges, council car park prices and car park permits.

Residents and workers in Dorset can benefit from cheaper prices through two new car park permits, which are now available to purchase and replace the 76 existing old district/borough permits.

The short stay car park permit provides parking for two hours every day in the majority of Dorset Council short stay car parks and costs £78 for 12 months.

The flexi stay car park permit provides unlimited parking in the majority of Dorset Council long stay car parks and free parking for two hours every day in the majority of Dorset Council short stay car parks. The flexi stay car park permit costs £25 a month or £260 for 12 months.

Car parking charges and fines fund the operation of the Council’s parking services department. Any surplus the service makes goes into the highways service, helping fund drainage works, reactive pothole repairs, car park safety and general maintenance.

Cabinet approved the new, more consistent charging structure and pricing on 8 November 2021.

The new pricing structure is available to view on the council website.
