Richmondshire District Council

Parking restrictions on some of our car parks will be in place to accommodate the race start infrastructure. We aim to minimise the impact on residents and businesses whilst ensuring the safe and successful delivery of the championships. As various car parks will be closed in Richmond, it is likely that traffic in and around the town will be much busier than usual so please ensure you allow yourself extra time to travel.

Parking restrictions

  • North of the Market Place (from the Obelisk to the area opposite the Bishop Blaize Hotel) - parking restrictions will be in place from 9am Wednesday 25 September until midnight on Thursday 26 September. 

  • Trinity Square - parking restrictions will be in place for the spaces to the left of Trinity Square (running alongside the fish and chip shop) from 6pm on Wednesday 25 September until midnight on Thursday 26 September. Vehicles will still be able to access the Market Place and exit via Kings Street on Wednesday 25 September.

  • Newbiggin - parking restrictions will be in place from 6pm on Wednesday 25 September until midnight on Thursday 26 September. For those residents and businesses who have a parking permit for Newbiggin, the council will be issuing alternative parking passes for you to use either in Nuns Close or Yorke Square car parks for the evening of Wednesday 25 September and all day on Thursday 26 September. A small number of spaces on Newbiggin will however be suspended from 9am on the Wednesday to accommodate race contractors.

  • South of the Market Place - this area will be subject to parking restrictions on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 September. To ensure your safety, we request that all vehicles are removed from the Market Place by 10pm on Wednesday 25 September.
