Car parking tickets purchased in any of the MVDC owned car parks are valid and transferable to all car parks in that town or village. E.g. a valid two hour ticket purchased in Ashtead Peace Memorial, could also be used in Grove Road car park.

30 minute free bays

The selected 'free for 30 minute' bays are marked out in green and require a special 30 minute ticket to be displayed. They will be patrolled regularly to reduce overstaying.

  • Parking in these bays will always require a 30 minutes ticket, which must be clearly displayed in the vehicle
  • 30 minutes tickets can only be used in the designated spaces. They cannot be used and will not be valid in any other car park spaces
  • Overstaying will not be tolerated as these spaces are being provided to ensure that as many people as possible can benefit from 'popping to the shops'
  • The 30 minute ticket will only be valid for the car park in which it is purchased and there is no return permitted within one hour

Disabled Parking

The Blue Badge scheme is for drivers or passengers with severe mobility problems and allows them to park on-street or in MVDC car parks close to where they need to go free of charge.

A blue badge may be used in a disabled parking bay. More details of where you can park is explained in the GOV.UK Blue Badge rights and responsibilities booklet.

Information on how to apply or renew a Blue Badge can be found on Surrey County Council's website.

Residents who are temporarily disabled, for example awaiting a hip replacement, can apply for a Temporary Disability Permit for a small fee, entitling them to park in MVDC owned car parks free of charge.

Please note, facilities for motorhomes are not provided for in any of MVDC's car parks.

Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall Car Park Refurbishment

A project to refurbish Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall car park was completed in November 2019.

Improvements include a complete resurfacing of the car park, improved drainage to prevent flooding, clearer signs, improved lighting to make the car park safer, and work to ensure all the spaces meet modern size standards. Cabling has also been laid in preparation for future plug-in electric vehicle charging points.

This is the beginning of a £1 million project to refurbish all of Mole Valley District Council's car parks. The next car park to be refurbished will be Southside in Dorking in summer 2020.
