Council car parks

All of our car parks are open and fully operational.

Charges and enforcement

All charges in council car parks and on-street parking bays have been reinstated.   Please check in each location to see what the restrictions are and whether payment is required.

A range of free parking initiatives have also been introduced, including a trial initiative allowing free parking after 3pm in Duke Street car park in Hamilton.

In East Kilbride Village car parks, parking is free for up to 1 hour, thereafter charges apply.

In the on-street parking bays in the Village, East Kilbride parking is limited to a maximum of one hour and is now free of charge.  The Pay and Display machines at this location will not be operational.

The cashless parking app RingGo is now also available for use in all council off-street car parks.

Parking enforcement measures are still in place. This includes Penalty Charge Notices for parking on yellow lines, not displaying a valid badge/permit in disabled spaces or residents parking or parking outwith a designated parking space.  Please see How to avoid getting a parking ticket for more information.

Parking permits

Permits should be displayed as normal.  If your permit has expired, please email to arrange for a renewal.

How to contact us

We are unable to answer your calls in person. If your call is about paying a previously issued Penalty Charge Notice please follow the instructions on the back of the ticket.

Please park sensibly and safely.
