Three hour parking ticket machines to be switched on imminently

A protective cover removed from one of the signs in Brandon’s Bury Road car park reveals the new restrictions

Ticket machines to enforce a three hour maximum stay in two West Suffolk towns are set to become active very soon.

The machines, along with new signage, have recently been installed in car parks in Brandon and Bury St Edmunds but are not yet in use.

It follows a review of parking by West Suffolk Council back in February when a new three hour limit was proposed for the Bury Road car park in Brandon.

The council also decided that machines should be installed in the car parks on Moreton Hall in Bury St Edmunds, to enforce an already present time restriction.

Those using the Bury Road car park in Brandon and the Lawson Place or Community Centre car parks on Moreton Hall in Bury St Edmunds will soon be required to display a free ticket.

Visitors will need to enter their registration number on the machine and display the ticket in their vehicle during their stay.

West Suffolk Council could not give a definitive date as to when the machines will be in use, just that it was coming soon.

The limits will apply in Brandon’s Bury Road car park between 8am and 6pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sunday. In the Moreton Hall car parks they will apply between 9.30am and 3pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 3pm on Sunday.
