Parking changes due to closure of the multi-storey car park

The town centre multi-storey car park is due to close on Sunday 29 July. It's being demolished this summer, as part of the town centre redevelopment. 

During the changes there'll be:

  • more free weekend parking at 11 additional sites across the town centre
  • changes to short-stay free parking limits
  • free long-stay parking where yellow bags have been placed over the machines
  • a mix of long- and short-stay parking at the Courthouse car park

You can read more about the changes here.

A new multi-storey car park will open in 2020 as part of The Glass Works scheme.

Pay and display parking

We have a number of pay and display car parks across the borough, including over 2,400 pay and display parking spaces in the town centre.  

If you use our pay and display car parks, make sure you display a valid ticket or you may receive a parking fine. See parking enforcement for more information on parking fines and how to pay them.

On street parking

We've a number of controlled parking zone areas in Barnsley, where all on-street parking is managed and restricted. These zones are clearly signposted around their boundaries so that you know when you're entering or leaving one. In these zones, you can only park in the designated parking spaces; the remainder of the kerbside is under 'yellow line' restrictions. Anyone breaching these restrictions may be fined.

Parking charges apply in these areas. 

Car park season tickets

You can buy a season ticket which allows you to park in the following car parks during the week: Churchfield; County Way; Court House; Mark Street, and levels 5 to 9 in the multi-storey.

A ticket will cost you £22 a week; £82 a month; £230 for three months; or £770 for a full year. You can order a season ticket or request a replacement by completing our application form and emailing it back to us.

Before we process your application, we’ll ring you and ask you to pay the full cost of the permit, or the administration fee if you’re applying for a replacement. You can pay by debit or credit card.

Your season ticket will be ready to collect from the Town Hall reception three working days from the date we take your payment. You can pick it up between 9am and 4pm any weekday and you’ll need to show some photographic ID.

Private car parks

In addition to the council car parks we provide,  there are a number of private companies who operate public car parks in Barnsley. These car parks may have rules and regulations surrounding their use. These will usually be clearly displayed in and around the car park or available from the car park owner/operator.

Some of them may also have restrictions on the height, width or length of your vehicle.
