Latest Car Parking
November 2016 update on parking
After a great deal of lobbying from the Chamber , MCC Highways have confirmed that the Rockfield Road car park will be open at sometime during week commencing 5th December. Monmouth businesses are urged to encourage staff and customers to park there to free up space in Glendower Street car park.
Sadly again on the negative side, the Wyebridge street car park originally booked to come to the MCC planning meeting for December has now been delayed until the January.
New free car park for Monmouth!
4th August 2015
David Cummings, Chairman of Monmouth and District Chamber of Trade and Commerce made a short speech in wholehearted support of the Rockfield Road 95 space car park in front of the county council planning committee on 4th August.
Application reference DC/2014/00412.
It was something the Chamber had actively lobbied for since 2008.
In his speech he outlined the urgent need for a free car park to be used mainly by shop workers, some of whom are on the minimum wage.
He indicated that the Chamber very much supported the fact that the car park had an all weather surface and would be lit, so could be used at all times of year.
The application was passed unanimously and David hoped that work could begin later in 2015 on site.
