Other Parking Facilities

Parent/Child spaces and 'dual use' bays

There are currently 16 dedicated parent/child spaces in The Brooks car park.

There are also a further 5 'dual use' bays in our Middle Brook Street car park and 6 in our Chesil Multi storey car park. It is expected that a parent/child bay is used by a vehicle which has either a booster or child seat, or is carrying children up to the age of 12.

Dual use bays allow both disabled motorists and parent/child visitors to use the same bay, if available.

Electric Vehicles

Winchester City Council currently have six publicly accessible charging units in the city centre.

Two can be found in Chesil Multi Storey car park (entrance level), two in Friarsgate (basement level), both locations are accessible 24/7, and two bays within The Brooks car park (upper level) which are accessible between 07:30am and 6:30pm 7 days a week.

The current policy is to pay for your parking as normal, but receive free charging whilst you are visiting/working in Winchester.

The units operate on a 32Amp ‘Fast Charge’ via a 7 pin plug, which can be obtained for the majority of the current EV vehicles on the market today.

Electric Vehicle or EV charging is also available at Park & Ride South, which is supplied by the Hampshire County Council scheme. Click on the link for further details.
