Charter multi-storey car park, Abingdon

Maintenance work at the multi-storey Charter car park

Levels 3 and upwards of the multi-storey will be closed from 7.30pm on Wednesday 3 March until further notice. This is to allow essential maintenance work to take place.  Please see this page for more information.

The lower levels of the multi-storey will remain open, however space will be very limited and so we would encourage motorists use the town’s other car parks.

Important information about parking on vaccination days

On specific days, parking will also only be available for those who need to visit the Malthouse Surgery for their second Covid-19 vaccination.   

The next days reserved for vaccination parking will be 26 and 27 May.  

Motorists should therefore park in the town’s other car parks on these days.

Spaces will remain available in the multi-storey for disabled motorists and passengers.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
