*Chippenham residents who work in the town centre are eligible to apply for a low-cost permit if they are on a means tested benefit or have a single household income of less than £16,000 or £30,000 for a joint household income.

The Arc Car Park

This section of the car park runs from the entrance point and area in front of the wooden fencing towards The Arc and is identifiable by the red marked bays. The Arc Car Park will provide 23 new, ‘pay as you go’ spaces for users of the climbing centre, skatepark and new children’s play area.

Users can pay to park in one of the spaces by using the RingGo app or by calling 0121 259 0049 citing car registration number and location. Payment is by debit or credit card and the location number for the car park is 33126. Save time before you visit by downloading the RingGo app.

Some phone networks have bad reception in the area, but you can pop into The Arc during opening hours to access wifi if you have problems. Parking Tariffs as follow (correct at time of posting):-

The Arc Disabled Parking

There is a small car park directly adjacent to The Arc which can be used by disabled visitors (as well as TCA staff). This is behind a barrier. Please use the call button on the barrier to gain access. Please note that parking charges and restrictions still apply in this car park unless you have been issued with a free permit. Free permits will primarily be issued to staff.
