Earlier this year, our Cabinet voted to introduce parking charges at Hylands Estate.
We have held two consultations on the issue, open to all users of the estate, and have received over 7,500 responses.
You can read the report from the first round of consultation and read the minutes of the Cabinet meeting on 12 October 2021.
Following these consultations, we have listened to feedback from residents and users of the park and made some changes to the initial proposals.
Our Cabinet approved the proposed Traffic Regulation Order on 12 October. The parking charges came into effect on Monday 8 November 2021. You can find out more about parking at Hylands.
You can read more about this on our City Life news website.
The pricing options include:
- a charge of £2 for residents and £3.35 for non-residents for up to one hour
- a charge of £3 for residents and £5 for non-residents for over an hour
- annual season tickets for residents at £4.50 a month for a five day pass and £6 a month for seven day pass
- annual season tickets for non-residents at £6.75 a month for a five day pass and £8.25 a month for seven day pass
Chelmsford residents may also add a second car for £1.35 a month for five days or £1.80 a month for seven days.
As before, some groups and individuals would be able to park free of charge, including:
- Blue Badge holders
- residents receiving Council Tax support
- volunteers and organised groups using Hylands for activities associated with education, mental health or disability support
- visitors attending weddings and other private functions and activities at the House and Grand Pavilion
We will determine the charges for parking associated with outdoor events on an event-by-event basis.
