Car Parks in Tenterden

Tenterden Parking Notice

Tenterden Leisure Centre

Please be aware that works commenced on some construction work at Tenterden Leisure Centre on 10 April 2021.

The contractors fenced of an area of the car park as their compound. There will be other areas that are also suspended as they simply won’t be safe for use while work is being carried out. 

This means that some areas will not be available for parking at this time. 

This will effect use of Electric Vehicle Charging points and we ask you to use an alternative location for charging.

The existing coach parking area will be consumed by the contractors' compound. However, a temporary coach parking bay will be available.

Car Park Vouchers

Car Park Vouchers are now available.  Vouchers offer a flexible, cost effective alternative for daily parking and can be used in several car parks.  For more information see our Season Tickets and Car Park Vouchers page.

On-street parking in Tenterden

There are a number of free parking bays in the town centre which are subject to prohibitions and restrictions. Most of these are restricted between 8am and 6pm Monday to Saturday (when parking, please check the signs relating to the particular bay or set of bays).

Please note that most bays are subject to a maximum stay of one hour during the day (again, please refer to signs when parking).

There are also a number of designated disabled bays on the High Street, with a maximum limit of three hours for each stay, to increase the number of blue badge holders that might use the bays during the day.
