Clock Towers Streamlines Parking Charges Ready For Upgrade

After eight years of maintaining some of the lowest parking rates in Rugby, Clock Towers Shopping Centre has undergone a full review of its parking facilities and charges to provide the best option for its customers and the wider Rugby community.

Clock Towers still remains one of the cheapest options for parking for 2 hours in the city centre, at just £1.00, however it has removed the 1 hour parking option as their research has shown that the vast majority of shoppers, in the shopping centre and the town spend up to 2 hours doing all their shopping. As a result of their review, Clock Towers has also removed all ‘odd’ amounts in their parking tariff to reduce the need for loose change – the new tariff can be found below and at http://clocktowersrugby.co.uk/parking/.

The new parking tariff at Clock Towers is now in line with the majority of car parks in the city centre, however has always been and it still remains the most secure car park in town. It provides undercover parking with CCTV, security and the doors are locked between 7pm and 7am daily. The car park has also received the prestigious Park Mark award for another 2 years for the quality and security of its facilities.

In addition to its hourly tariffs, Clock Towers offers monthly and quarterly permits for those wanting to park in the centre all day, every day, for work. These permits are the cheapest available in the town at £50 per month or £120 per quarter, from as little as £1.85 per day. There are a limited number of permits available, applicants simply need to contact the centre management office – full details for which are on the website.

As well as amending the parking tariffs, the car park has been repainted and most importantly the car parking facilities will also see a full overhaul at the beginning of 2016 – with a new payment system.

The current chip coin system will still be in operation but in the coming months, shoppers and visitors will be able to pay with Debit or Credit Cards and also through contactless payments – the only large car park in the centre to be offering these services.
