Parking News

Catmose car park will be closed from 4pm on 18 December until further notice - we apologise for any inconvenience

Free parking over the festive period

You can park for two hours free of charge in all Council run car parks until 31 December 2020:

  • normal parking charges apply after 2 hours 
  • all on-street parking restrictions and resident's parking schemes stay the same

Changes to parking services during the pandemic

Parking services are offering the same services as before the pandemic, with these exceptions:

  • as our offices are closed, you cannot visit in person for any parking related service - you can email enquiries@rutland.gov.uk or call 01572 722577 instead. For Penalty Charge Notices, you need to follow the instructions on the back of the Notice
  • as part of our COVID-19 response, you cannot pay by cash at the pay and display machines - the machines are now cashless, taking contactless card payments only. This is a permanent change
  • we are working in a COVID-19 responsive and compliant way - this means you may experience a delay when using parking services due to resource levels and prioritisation

Abusive behaviour, including vexatious communications, towards our parking staff will not be tolerated and will be referred to our legal department or police if appropriate
