Reports of anti-social behaviour at this location have been notified to the Council.  Therefore the closure of this car park will take place in November.  The land has been declared surplus to requirements by the Council’s parking service and the future use of the site will now be considered by the Council’s Strategic Land Task Group.

Update - 23 October 2013

The closure of Watcombe car park has been postponed for now.

For information, and some history on this decision, it was identified as surplus to our service requirements when we undertook the Parking Review in 2016. We unfortunately don’t have the resources to monitor a free car park or to operate a night time only closure. Our Strategic Land Task Group will determine what happens next but at this time we do not have a timeline on when this will be discussed.

As soon as there is more information available we will let you know.
