Free Christmas parking

We'll once again be providing free parking in all council-owned car parks on Saturday 16 December and Sunday 17 December 2023 (inclusive), to help residents with their festive shopping.

Free parking will allow visitors to shop local, supporting small businesses, and visit the best of Medway’s bespoke stores to tick things off the Christmas list.

Important changes to Blue Boar Lane and Corporation Street car parks in Rochester 

The following car parks now use automatic number plate recognition (ANPR):

More about the ANPR system.

Blue Badge and taxi permits

If you're registering for either a Blue Badge or taxi permit (Corporation Street only) to access free parking at the above ANPR car parks or Rochester multi-storey car park, these permits are currently taking longer to process.

This is due to an unusually high number of applications being received. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.
