Parking permits

Permits last for three months or a year and offer parking at discounted rates. You can buy them for all long-stay car parks in the district, when space is available.

Due to the expansion of the Orchard Centre, bringing new shops, restaurants and landscaped public areas to Didcot we will need to close some of our town centre car parks.  This will happen as follows:  High Street car park - closed from 17 February 2017.  Broadways East & West will be closed from 31st March 2017.  We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause. 

We can no longer offer any permit parking in Didcot and the following car parks are currently full to capacity and we are not issuing permits for them.  If you wish to be added to our waiting list, please call the car parks team:

  • Southfields car park in Henley-on-Thames
  • All car parks in Wallingford 

How much will a permit cost?

Please see our permit price list (downloads section of this page).  All our permits are half the list price for owners of a vehicle with a CO2 emission of 120g/km or less or for those coming into the district's towns to work.
