From Monday May 24, 2021 Beehive Lane car park offers:

  • Free parking of up to an hour (normal charges apply for longer stays, for example a two-hour stay remains at £1.60 etc)
  • Free parking on Sundays
  • Free parking after 6pm each day

This temporary measure has been introduced to support local businesses while the Bedford Square Gateway Project continues and causes some disruption in the town centre. It will be regularly reviewed.

Additional disinfection of surface contact points has been implemented and socially distanced measures are in place.

All Loughborough car parks offer contactless payment options.

Charnwood Borough Council has added new technology to the car park machines to further reduce contact of surfaces in the car park. On approach to the barrier the “Wave for ticket” will issue a ticket without pressing a button. On return the ticket can be scanned for charges and payment made by contactless card options.

This decision will be reviewed on a regular basis and amended to reflect any changes in the guidance.

Beehive Lane currently holds the Park Mark award for safety and security.
