Due to a continuing software problem with our Metric permit system, we are currently unable to issue parking permits for Kingsbury Water Park and Ryton Pools Country Park with an end date beyond 31st March 2016. In order to still be in a position to offer a permit to our customers, this will have to be on a pro-rata discount basis after 1st October 2015.
For example, up to and including 1st October 2015 you will be able to purchase a six month permit. If you purchase a permit from 2nd October 2015, you will only pay for 5 months, from 2nd November you will pay for 4 months, and so on.
Also from 2nd October, because of the differential fees you will not be able to purchase permits online for Kingsbury Water Park, Ryton Pools Country Park, All Parks, North Parks and South Parks. Permits can be purchased in person from the Visitor Centres at Kingsbury and Ryton.
We apologise for the inconvenience and hopefully the supplier of our parking machines will be able to resolve the issues very soon.
