Parking for Key Workers 

In line with Government advice, Ayrshire Roads Alliance has implemented a virtual parking permit scheme for key workers (as defined by Government) who are based, or work in and around, town centres within South Ayrshire.

Permits are available at no cost for use in any Council car park, other than those that are temporarily closed*, or on street designated parking bays.

To apply for a permit, please complete the application form below, and include a covering statement from your line manager or employer in support of the application.

*You can view a full list of current car park closures below.

Car Parks 

Our car parks are now open. 

We know this will be great news for many of you, but please respect national travel guidance and stay close to home. Remember to stay safe by observing physical distancing and following government guidance. 

Plans are being developed for the safe re-opening of public toilets, and we'll keep you up to date with progress around this.

Outdoor play areas re-opened on the 29 June.
