Richmondshire District Council

Parking restrictions

Traffic management planning is well underway for the 2019 UCI Road World Championships, which will see Richmond host the start of the Men's Junior Road Race on Thursday 26 September 2019. Parking restrictions on some of our car parks will be in place to accommodate the race start infrastructure. We are aiming to minimise the impact on residents and businesses whilst ensuring the safe and successful delivery of the championships.

Some pay and display parking within Richmond will remain open, however some of our car parks will be in use for event purposes.
