Parking at The Arc
A new car park has been created for visitors to The Arc complex. Situated at the end of Westmead Lane at the top of the driveway leading to the centre, 23 new spaces indicated by red bays provide handy access to the climbing centre, skatepark and new children’s play park.
Save time before you visit by downloading the RingGo app. Some networks have bad reception, but you can pop into the centre to jump onto wifi.
Users can pay to park by using the RingGo app or by calling 0121 259 0049 citing car registration number and location. Payment is by debit or credit card and the location number for the car park is 33126.
Parking Tariffs as follow (correct as time of posting): –
1 Hour – £1.00
2 Hours – £1.70
3 Hours – £2.40
4 Hours – £3.10
The whole car park is being managed and operated by Euro Parking Services, with ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) and CCTV in operation. If you are arriving by bike, we have extensive sheltered bike parking. Full T&Cs and charges are displayed on site and below.
There is an additional small car park directly adjacent to the building which can be used by disabled visitors (as well as TCA staff). This is behind a barrier. Please use the call button on the barrier to gain access. Please note that parking charges and restrictions still apply in this car park, unless you have been issued with a free permit. Free permits will be primarily issued to staff.
You may drop-off visitors to The Arc within the paid zone without charge as long as you do not stay and use the car park.
