On-street parking and disc zones
What is disc zone parking?
The Disc Parking Scheme is in operation throughout Cumbria. It gives drivers the opportunity to locate a short-stay parking space, close to shops and the town centre facilities, while encouraging the rapid turnover of available parking spaces.
Disc Zones offer free, time-limited, on-street parking in Eden.
What to do when parking in a disc zone:
- Display the disc clearly on the vehicle windscreen showing the correct time of arrival.
- Check the disc zone signs - times allowed vary: 30 minutes, 1, 2, or 3 hours.
- Ensure you return within the time limit to avoid receiving a Penalty Charge Notice.
Where can I get a parking disc from?
Clock discs can be obtained free of charge from shops in the town centre displaying a parking poster. Alternatively, discs can be posted to you, prior to your visit, by the Penrith Tourist Information Centre, telephone: 01768 867466, or email email@example.com.
