You have the option of buying a 30 minute for 50p or a one hour ticket for £1. Please note the minimum stay is 30 minutes. If you want to stay longer, simply pay for what you need in 5p increments.

Car parking tickets purchased in any of the MVDC owned car parks are valid and transferable to all car parks in that town or village. E.g. a valid two hour ticket purchased in Ashtead Peace Memorial, could also be used in Grove Road car park.

30 minute free bays

The selected 'free for 30 minute' bays are marked out in green and require a special 30 minute ticket to be displayed. They will be patrolled regularly to reduce overstaying.

  • Parking in these bays will always require a 30 minutes ticket, which must be clearly displayed in the vehicle
  • 30 minutes tickets can only be used in the designated spaces. They cannot be used and will not be valid in any other car park spaces
  • Overstaying will not be tolerated as these spaces are being provided to ensure that as many people as possible can benefit from 'popping to the shops'
  • The 30 minute ticket will only be valid for the car park in which it is purchased and there is no return permitted within one hour

Disabled Parking

The Blue Badge scheme is for drivers or passengers with severe mobility problems and allows them to park on-street or in MVDC car parks close to where they need to go free of charge.

A blue badge may be used in a disabled parking bay. More details of where you can park is explained in the GOV.UK Blue Badge rights and responsibilities booklet.

Information on how to apply or renew a Blue Badge can be found on Surrey County Council's website.

Residents who are temporarily disabled, for example awaiting a hip replacement, can apply for a Temporary Disability Permit for a small fee, entitling them to park in MVDC owned car parks free of charge.

Please note, facilities for motorhomes are not provided for in any of MVDC's car parks.

Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall Car Park Refurbishment

Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall car park is being refurbished from Monday 2 September to Friday 8 November. This is the beginning of a £1 million project to refurbish all of Mole Valley District Council's car parks.

To minimise the effect on the public while completing the project as quickly as possible, the work will be done in three sections. This means that different parts of the 165-space car park will be closed at different times. All available spaces will be clearly signposted throughout the work.

We recommend that anyone struggling to find a space use Grove Road car park, which is a two-minute drive from Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall car park. The same parking charges apply at both car parks.

Improvements include a complete resurfacing of the car park, improved drainage to prevent flooding, clearer signs, improved lighting to make the car park safer, and work to ensure all the spaces meet modern size standards. Cabling is also being laid in preparation for future plug-in electric vehicle charging points.

The car parks being refurbished next year will be Southside in Dorking in the summer and St Martin's Walk in Dorking in the autumn. More details will be published later this year.

If you would like to discuss the works at Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall car park, or the project generally, in more detail, please call the Property Team on 01306 879193.
