A rover ticket lets you park your car in most (but not all) Council long stay car parks for a single payment. 

You can now purchase them to start at any time of the day, so you can park immediately after you have made your payment if you need to. 

Our tickets are electronic so you will not have a ticket to display in your windscreen. Once you have purchased your ticket, and received confirmation it is valid. It is on our system and our parking officers can check your ticket using your vehicle registration

  • 7 day rover - £47.00
  • 3 month rover - £206.20
  • 6 month rover - £412.40
  • Annual rover - £824.80
