General information about car parks

Changes to parking charges due to coronavirus outbreak

In response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, Herefordshire Council is introducing some temporary changes to parking.

  • All on street and off street car parking charges will be suspended to allow those needing to make essential visits to pharmacies etc
  • The Bus Station car park, Hereford will close to the public to ensure emergency services and Sodexo workers have access to parking

These measures will make it easier for people to go about their essential business, and free up council staff to be deployed protecting our community.

Please continue to be courteous and respectful of others when parking.

The changes come into effect from 24 March 2020 and will last for up to three months.

More information can be found on the Decisions page of the Herefordshire Council website.

Disabled parking

Disabled badge holders are entitled to three hours free parking in our pay and display car parks. You must display a valid badge and clock correctly. If you need more than three hours, you can buy a ticket to give extra time, but you mustn't exceed the car park's maximum stay.

Many council car parks have dedicated disabled spaces which allow extra room, but disabled badge holders can park in any space designated for cars.

Electric car parking and charging

A number of council car parks have electric charging points installed in them with designated parking spaces. Electric vehicle drivers are entitled to use the designated parking spaces whilst recharging their vehicles. Standard parking charges apply with a four hour maximum stay (from 3 April 2017). For more information visit Electric car charging.
