Bear Brook and Canalside (front) car parks, both in Exchange Street, Aylesbury, will close from Monday 16 April to allow building work to start on Aylesbury’s exciting new theatre.

David Betts, Head of Property & Operational Services, said, “Building works at Walton Street have meant the partial closure of the existing car park there, which was one of the reasons for creating a temporary car park at the Bear Brook site. Walton Street will get a new 525-space multi-storey car park next year, but we are very conscious of the impact on parking spaces that the Waterside redevelopment of the town centre will have. We shall be working hard to ensure that there is an adequate supply of parking spaces in the town centre for both workers and shoppers as Waterside progresses.”

In the meantime, people looking for long stay parking are advised to use Friarscroft car park (behind Morrison’s supermarket), which is just a short walk from the town centre. This currently has the best supply of long stay spaces.  More information about parking can be found on the council’s website: www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/parking
