From Tuesday, 01 December 2020, cashless charging has been introduced in most Ceredigion County Council pay and display car parks. The charges being held at 2019/2020 rates.

No charges will continue to apply at the Council’s car parks in Cardigan at this time due to the current local COVID-19 infection rate.

The parking charges have been suspended across Ceredigion since late March 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the national lockdown. Introducing cashless charging is one way of reducing the risks of COVID-19 transmission associated with cash transactions.

During a Cabinet meeting held virtually on 01 December 2020, a petition was discussed against reintroducing the parking fees. Most parking providers, including all neighbouring Local Authorities, have charged either fully or partly throughout the COVID-19 period while no charges have been made in Ceredigion for over 8 months. The loss of income for Ceredigion has been significant and the Welsh Government have indicated that they will not offset ongoing losses. The situation is therefore unsustainable and as such parking charges have had to be reintroduced.

Free parking will be provided on Saturday 05, 12 and 19 of December 2020 at all Council pay and display car parks in the run up to Christmas.
