Car parks

The borough council currently provides and maintains a total of 29 pay and display car parks throughout the four town centres of Alfreton, Belper, Heanor and Ripley. There are also a number of free car parks in outlying villages. Details of the charges and locations of car parks is available on this web page.

The borough council operates civil parking enforcement in partnership with Derbyshire County Council for both off street and on street parking. For further information please visit the Parksmarterwebsite.

In certain pay and display car parks eligible residents and business users may purchase permits which are valid for various periods up to one year. Most car parks have spaces close to key facilities marked specifically for the use by disabled persons.
