The Council appear to have quietly changed the rules about residents using car parks. You still need to buy a ticket but don’t need to leave at 6am. You can now stay till 9am..
“Overnight Car Park Parking
The holder of a Residents’ Parking permit purchasing an overnight car park ticket in a car park adjoining their zone, which would normally be valid between 6.00pm and 6.00am, can park until 9.00am for no additional payment.
