I would like to park on Council land

First check whether the Council owns the land using our Interactive Mapping.

If we do own it, we may consider your request to park on the land. Please use this form to Contact our Assets Team.

If we don't own the land, we recommend you contact the Land Registry to find out who does own it.

For further information about our car parks, please visit our Parking pages.   


Do I need a licence to run a catering van/ice cream van on your land?

You would need the consent of the Council as landowner, a licence to trade on the land and the relevant food handling certificates to run a catering or ice cream van on Council land.  Please contact us using  this form.

The Council has identified sites it considers suitable for trading on and these sites are advertised in the local press to let by tender every three years.
