Car parks within the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council area may have pay and display parking in operation. Charges can apply all year round.
There are two types of car parks providing long stay or short stay options. Short stay car parks provide spaces for visitors and are therefore located closer to the town centre, while long stay car parks catering for people working in the town throughout the day are located further away.
Redcar On Street Parking
Redcar also has pay and dis play and free on-street parking places. Bays are located in the High Street, Station Road, The Esplanade, Granville Terrace, Cleveland Street, Queen Street and Newcomen Terrace. There is a range of charges (some parking bays are free) depending on the location and information is displayed at the parking meters or signs adjacent to the bays. Please make sure that you purchase a ticket from the nearest parking machine to ensure that you display the correct ticket for the specified parking bay you have chosen.
Parking tickets purchased in car parks are not valid for use in on street parking bays.

Conditions of Use
Conditions of use of the parking places are also displayed within the car parks on information boards next to the ticket machines. It is the drivers responsibility to check that all coins have registered before pressing the green button to issue the ticket, and to ensure that it is displayed securely within the area of the windscreen before leaving their vehicle in the parking place.
Drivers should ensure that they:
- Display their ticket in a prominent position
- Park fully within the designated bay markings
- Purchase sufficient time for their stay
- Don't park in spaces reserved for disabled drivers
- Don't park on hatched/keep clear areas or single/double yellow lines
If you do not comply with the conditions of use you may receive a Penalty Charge Notice.
Parking tickets purchased in a long stay car park are not transferable for use to a short stay car park and vice versa.
Disabled Badge Holders
Disabled badge holders can park in any of the designated disabled spaces (on-street or within car parks) without time limit and in any other pay and display parking spaces, free for up to 3 hours, provided a valid time badge is displayed correctly. The badge must be displayed with the side showing the expiry date and serial number and not the photograph side.
Park Mark Award
The Park Mark award is an initiative of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and managed by the British Parking Association. The scheme is designed to recognize the owners of car park facilities who have introduced effective measures that help to deter criminal activity and anti-social behavior in order to reduce the instances and fear of crime in their car parks. Measures include the use of CCTV, improved lighting and regular patrols by parking attendants to help to create a safe and secure environment. The council has been awarded the Park Mark award for 22 of its car parks and work is progressing to improve other car parks in order that they also meet the criteria.
Two key points to remember from the Customer Charter displayed in the car parks, that contribute to reducing the potential for crime are ensuring that you the driver:
- Place your valuable items out of sight, preferably in the boot of the vehicle.
- Ensure that your car is locked and any security devices are activated or fitted.
Car parks have a two tonne weight limit and are therefore not suitable for large vehicles. There are coach/lorry parking facilities in Redcar at Majuba Road car park and six coach parking spaces in Guisborough at Fountain Street East car park.
Dogs in Cars
Never leave your dog or other animals in your car in warm or hot weather even with windows left open, as they can become severely dehydrated. Owners who put their animals at risk could face prosecution resulting in fines or prison sentences.
