In 2018 there will be no vehicles movements within the inner market boundary detailed within the October newsletter (a copy of this newsletter can be found by clicking here). For clarity the hours of no vehicle movements are-

Thursday 6th December 11:30am to 10:00pm

Friday 7th December & Saturday 8th December 09:30am to 10:00pm

Sunday 9th December 09:30am to 10:00pm

However when the market is not in operation (outside of the above times) the cordon does not apply and vehicles can move within the inner area of the market (To view a map of the inner and outer area please click here). Because of this we are encouraging residents and guests to move their vehicles outside of the market hours, park outside of the  inner market area and walk to their destination, or use the Park and Ride facilities provided.

Local Residents

For local residents within the inner area who would like to utilise the Park and Ride facility need to apply for a pass by filling the form in, by clicking here. The park and ride operates during the following times; Thursday 6th December 11.30am – 10pm, Friday 7th and Saturday 8th December 9am – 10pm and Sunday 9th December: 9am – 7:30pm.

The pass will then be sent out to the address within the inner area in advance of the market.

Park and Ride for Hotel Guest

For those of you whose guests would like to utilise the Park and Ride facilities, it is the hotelier’s responsibility to apply on behalf of their guests to use the free Park and Ride. The park and ride operates during the following times; Thursday 6th December 11.30am – 10pm, Friday 7th and Saturday 8th December 9am – 10pm and Sunday 9th December: 9am – 7:30pm.

Hoteliers must apply online and can distribute passes where appropriate on their guests arrival. Guests will only need to show their passes for the Park and ride on their departure from the Showground. Hoteliers can fill in the form by clicking here.

On the form you can fill it in for multiple guests and these will then be posted out to the hotel address in advance of the market.
