Parking Information

Blaby District Council has 14 Public Car Parks

  • Four are Pay and Display (See Management scheme for Charges)
  • Five are associated for Recreational and Leisure Facilities
  • The remaining five are located in several villages throughout the District

The hours of operation and charging for the pay and display car parks are 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday (including Bank Holidays). Sundays are free to park.

The pay and display car park in Blaby Town centre is located on Enderby Road (Forge Corner) and Johns Court (Iceland). The other three are within Narborough Village and include Weavers Court, Leicester Road, and Narborough Station.

All of our pay and display machines offer coin, card, and contactless methods of payment. These are available at every level of the tariff for each car park. Unfortunately, no change can be issued from the machines for security reasons. For a full list of charges, click the below purple banners.

PayByPhone is also available in all pay and display car parks, allowing users to purchase and top up parking whilst away from the area. No ticket is required in this case, with all transactions dealt through the dedicated mobile phone app. For further information, please visit our Pay By Phone page.

Financial Year 2013/14 the expenditure was £203,989 and the income was £125,904. For that year the cost to the authority of operating the car parks was £78,085.

Financial Year 2014/15 the budget for expenditure is £193,823 and the expected income is £125,907. The expected cost to the authority for this year is £67,929.

Figures for income will be added at a later date.

On-Street Parking Issues

Leicestershire County Council is the Highway authority responsible for the control and regulation of all on-street parking issues (for example double yellow lines or no waiting restrictions). Blaby District Council have no responsibility for this parking provision. Any complaints or concerns regarding these matters should be directed to Leicestershire County Council by calling 0116 305 0001.

Enforcement

We have two Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) who are employed by Harborough District Council as part of an enforcement partnership with other District and Borough Councils in Leicestershire. They patrol our car parks and can issue Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) for offences in contravention of the parking restrictions. They also enforce on-street areas of Blaby District on behalf of Leicestershire County Council.

All PCN complaints, appeals, and payments are dealt with by the Notice Processing Unit (NPU) based at County Hall in Glenfield. Any queries regarding parking fines should be directed to the NPU by following the appeals procedure which can be found in the reverse of the PCN. Further information can be found on the parking matters website or using the following contact details:

Police

Should you have concerns or complaints about a vehicle(s) causing an obstruction or parking in a dangerous manner, the Police have powers to remove vehicles. Should you wish to report an incident you can do this by calling 101. Blaby District Council has no legislation to deal with this unless on Council land.
