Our car park is going ticketless and cashless from the 3rd July.Β 

We are always working hard to make sure our car park is managed effectively so your experience is the best it can be when you arrive. With this in mind, we are upgrading our car park system to a new car park monitoring company that will use state-of-the-art ANPR to log vehicles coming into and out of our multi-story car park.Β 


Ticketless and Cashless Parking

Our new ticketless system at The Howard Centre Car Park allows for seamless parking.

Simply enter your number plate into our pay stations (located on the ground and 1st floor of The Howard Centre) to pay when you’re leaving. No tickets or permit cards are required. Please remember to take note of your number plate when parking.

Before you leave you can pay with ease via:

  • Credit/Debit Card
  • Apple & Android Pay
  • ECP Park Buddy App (available on Apple and Android phones)


Cash will no longer be accepted.


Unfortunately due to rising energy, staff and maintenance costs, we have no other option but to increase our parking prices. It has been over 4 years since we reviewed our parking tariffs and despite the rise, our parking tariffs still remain competitive and below the rise of inflation.

Season Tickets

To assist with the cost of parking, we have created a new option to purchase discounted season tickets (which may be more cost-effective depending on how often you use our car park). These can be bought through Euro Car Parks, Park Buddy Website: https://ecpparkbuddy.com/

Or via the ECP Mobile App: ECPparkbuddy, which is available on Apple and Android phones.

Month: Β£85

Quarterly: Β£230

Annual: Β£850


Parking Etiquette

Please can we also ask you to be mindful of car parking etiquette. Euro Car Parks will be issuing fines for cars that are parked in disabled bays without displaying a disabled parking blue badge.
