Did you know we offer ways to save money on your parking that are suitable if you use them regularly or if you visit less often….

Frequent car park user?

Season tickets reduce the cost of parking if you frequently visit some of our council car parks. They allow one, three, six or 12 months of parking in advance.

Season tickets can be used in the following locations:

Ashford: Dover Place Car Park, Edinburgh Road Car Park, Elwick Road Car Park, Flour Mills Car Park, Station Road Car Park, Victoria Road Car Park

Tenterden: Bridewell Lane Car Park and the rear section of Tenterden Leisure Centre Car Park

Depending on the car park prices range from £59 for a month up to £836 for a year.

Use our car parks less frequently?

Car park vouchers are a flexible way to reduce the cost of parking for a day if you use our car parks a bit less frequently.

Our virtual vouchers can be purchased in books of 10, are valid for one year and can be used whenever you wish to park – handy if you only need to park a couple of times a week.

Vouchers are offered at two price points;

  1. A book of 10 vouchers priced £37.50 can be used in:
    Ashford: Edinburgh Road Car Park, Elwick Road Car Park, Dover Place Car Park and Station Road Car Park.
    Tenterden: Bridewell Lane Car Park and the car park behind Tenterden Leisure Centre.

  2. A book of 10 vouchers priced £32.50 can be used in:
    Ashford: Flour Mills Car Park, Henwood Car Park and Victoria Road Car Park.
