Getting locked in one of our car parks

If you are locked in one of our car parks after it closes, you can call 01245 606299. However, depending on staffing levels, you may not get your vehicle released immediately.

If you are able to get your vehicle released immediately, you will need to pay a £50 release fee.

Lost tickets

If you lose your ticket in a car park with a barrier, you will need to pay an £18 lost ticket fee. This applies to High Chelmer, Meadows Retail and Townfield Street.


You have the option to use the MiPermit app to pay for parking. You can watch our video on How to use MiPermit.

Blue Badge holders

If you are a Blue Badge holder, you can park in a car park disabled bay. You can park for free for the first three hours unless otherwise stated on the car park sign. You should clearly display a valid disabled person’s badge and time clock, or we will issue a parking fine (Penalty Charge Notice).

After three hours, you will need to move your vehicle (or pay normal prices), or we will issue a parking fine (Penalty Charge Notice).
