Have your say

South Kesteven District Council is offering residents in Stamford discounted season tickets while it comes up with a residents parking scheme for the town.

Lincolnshire County Council will take on responsibility for parking from December 3 and employing 20 wardens across the county, who have already started issuing warning notices.

The district council is consulting on residents’ parking zones, where residents will be able to pay for a permit for their street so they are not penalised for parking outside their own home.

But in the meantime, the district council is offering three-month and six-month season tickets at a reduced cost. Only certain addresses are eligible. Visit for a map showing the eligible addresses.

A season ticket for the long stay Cattle Market car park for six months will cost £25. In the Wharf Road car park, Monday to Friday tickets will cost £126 for six months or £64 for a quarter and Monday to Saturday tickets cost £153 for six months or £76.50 for a quarter.

The cost for Monday to Saturday tickets in the short stay car parks, which are North Street, Scotgate, St Leonard’s Street, and Bath Row, is £65 for six months. These tickets are only eligible for use between 4pm and 10am.

They will be available to buy from the office in Maiden Lane, Stamford, from Monday but can be reserved by calling 01476 406404 or e-mailing

There will be a maximum of 150 season tickets available in the Cattle Market car park, 100 at Wharf Road and 100 between the four short stay sites. They will all be issued on a first come, first served basis.
