Parking at Shirehall – please be considerate of others
We know that parking at Shirehall is tricky.
We have a number of things planned that will help such as new parking permits for staff, developing alternative travel plans and adding more parking spaces, but these will take time to implement.
In the meantime, we ask that you be considerate of others when parking your car at Shirehall. People blocking others in is becoming an increasing problem and we are often asked to reveal the owners of these cars. We hope that people understand that we will not be sharing this information.
Please only park in marked bays within the main and overflow car parks, avoid blocking in others and keep routes clear for emergency vehicles.

This month we look at how people might need to budget differently under Universal Credit and where to find help to do so.
