Parking enforcement

We would like to remind you that parking enforcement is in operation outside of term-time. A valid parking permit or pay and display parking ticket must be displayed 8.00-17.00 Monday to Friday, as per the Traffic Regulations.

Parking on Giles Lane by crossing

If you are parking in the area shown in the photograph, located next to the Woolf pelican crossing on Giles Lane, you may be issued with a Parking Notice from Canterbury City Council. This area is part of the public highway and is therefore enforced by Canterbury City Council Parking Enforcement Team.

We understand the area is sometimes used by Kent Highway service vehicles and is not a designated parking area.  Parking in this area is a cause for concern as vehicles parked here could potentially restrict vision to drivers on Giles Lane of pedestrians at the crossing.

Please only park in marked bays on campus in the area which your permit or parking ticket is valid for.
