Parking regulations

Our civil enforcement officers, known as community wardens monitor the use of car parks. The usual hours of enforcement are between 8am and 6pm, however on occasions we will carry out evening patrols. The officers will check that:

  • time limits are not exceeded between 8am and 6pm
  • parking places are used correctly and vehicles are parked within marked bays
  • disabled parking and parent and child bays are not misused
  • there's no unauthorised trading
  • valid parking permits are displayed
  • there's no parking on double yellow lines
  • vehicles do not exceed the 3500kg weight limit


As the landowner, we grit our council-owned car parks as and when needed.

However, Oxfordshire County Council are the highways authority for Oxfordshire and they are responsible for gritting roads and major shopping areas. For more information please:
