More parking spaces in Aylesbury town centre

More parking spaces are now available in Aylesbury town centre from today (9th Oct).

Changes to the management of the Waterside multi-storey car park, above Waitrose, will provide 101 additional parking spaces (96 standard and 5 disabled bays) for town centre and theatre visitors.

Floor 1 will remain reserved for Waitrose customers only, but both Floors 2 and 3 will be managed by AVDC and will be available for general public use.

From today anyone parking on Floor 2 or 3 will have to 'pay & display'.

The current scale of charges is displayed on ticket machines and on notices in the car park.

Floor 1 of the car park will be controlled and operated by Waitrose with a maximum stay of 90 minutes.

Councillor Julie Ward, AVDC Cabinet Member for Civic Amenities, said:

"Changing level 2 of the car park to general public use will provide an additional 101 spaces. It has also enabled us to remove the time restriction of 2 hours.

"The change is particularly welcomed as we move towards Christmas with the winter markets and other seasonal retail offers in the town centre and the busy pantomime season starting in early December at Waterside Theatre.

"It also responds to the call for extra parking given the success of new restaurants and bars in the area including  Rococo Lounge, The Grill Steakhouse and Zizzi in The Exchange and Miya, in the former police station".
