Parking in Stockport

4 hours free parking - Saturdays only

4 hours free parking is available every Saturday in most council owned pay by mobile, and pay and display car parks - except country parks and George Street lower car park. You do not need to pay for a RingGo session or display a ticket if you're leaving within the free 4 hour period. If you're staying longer than 4 hours you must pay for the full period of stay. For example; if you need to park for 5 hours you must pay for 5 hours parking when you leave your vehicle.

Free parking also applies to town centre on-street bays. In the 1 hour and 3 hour bays the maximum length of stay should be adhered to.

Paying for car parking

Please use the RingGo App on a mobile device if you're able to, to make touch free and coin free payments. If you use the app there are:

  • no additional charges
  • no need to carry coins
  • free reminders when your parking is running out

You also have the ability to extend your parking without returning to your vehicle.
