There is no charge in our Pay and Display car parks on Sundays and bank holidays. Blue Badge holders can park for free in pay and display bays at all times.

Motorcycle Parking

Solo motorcycles may park for FREE in any Council car park space except disabled persons' bays (unless displaying a valid Blue Badge). Rutland County Council's Parking Team are very motorcycle-friendly and will be happy to help or advise. Please email parkingmanagement@rutland.gov.uk if you require help parking.

Pay by mobile / Cashless Payment

Motorists using car parks in Oakham and Uppingham no longer have to hunt for change or rush back to their cars. RingGo is a quick, easy-to-use mobile phone service that allows users to pay for parking by credit or debit card, rather than with cash at a machine. If you chose to pay via RingGo, there is no need to display a ticket as Civil Enforcement Officers will instead check which vehicles have paid for parking using special handheld devices. To sign up visit the my RingGo website

Please note there is a fee on top of the existing tariffs per transaction.

Have you lost money in a Pay & Display machine?

If so, we are very sorry. We regularly service our machines and check them on an at least twice daily basis. Occasionally we have blockages caused by foreign objects ie buttons, Danish crowns etc, which causes coins to back up. We also find a substantial amount of damaged or counterfeit British coinage. 

Please email parkingmanagement@rutland.gov.uk with details of location, date, time, your name and address, your vehicle details and what happened.
