The university has received a number of complaints from local residents in relation to inconsiderate parking. This includes parking on the footpath, blocking driveways and parking so as to cause obstruction.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind students that they have a responsibility to park sensibly. The local police have informed us that they will be monitoring the situation and have confirmed that they have ticketed a vehicle this week where a wheelchair user was unable to use the footpath.
You are able to avoid this issue by purchasing a permit for Coppertops – just a 5 minute walk from the University and certainly closer from the majority of roads where we are experiencing issues. This permit costs just £25 for the year and also entitles you to park on main University car parks at off-peak times.
Can I also remind you that additional parking is available at the Riverside car park – this is close to Sabrina Bridge on the Hylton Road and is signposted, this car park is pay and display.
Please be considerate when parking.
