Fees and charges

Premium/Inner car parks

These are best suited to you if you are making relatively quick visits to the town. There are disabled bays located in these car parks, the pay and display car parks are free to disabled drivers provided you correctly display your valid blue badge. There is a normal parking charge for disabled drivers who park in the barrier controlled cark parks. Fareham residents park free if they have a valid swipe card. Swipe cards are for blue badge holders only and are available from the Civic Offices. Motorcycles may park free of charge in car parks with motorcycle only bays.

Charges apply Monday - Saturday 8am to 6pm and Sundays and Bank Holidays 10.30am to 4pm. Free after 5pm on Thursdays in Market Quay, Osborne Road and Fareham Shopping Centre car parks.  No charge on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.

Electric Vehicle Charging Points

Please note that there are two rapid charge points for electric vehicles in the Civic Way Car Park with three different types of connection and are able to charge a range of models including;  BWM, VW, Audi, Ford, General Motors, Porsche, Nissan, Citroen, Mistubishi, Peugeot, Renault and Kangoo.

A network of electric vehicle charge points have now been successfully commissioned across Hampshire with Hampshire County Council working in collaboration with Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE). You can find out more about the charge poins on Hampshire County Council's website. External Hyperlink

Outer Car Parks 

These are best suited if you plan to stay longer than five hours. This might be because you work in Fareham or are visiting on business. We also have three longer bays for motorhomes in Malthouse car park. There are disabled bays available in car parks except; Osborn Road West, Youth Centre and Lysses. Disabled drivers may park free of charge provided they correctly display a valid blue badge. Motorcycles may park free of charge in some car parks within Motorcycle only bays.

Season Tickets

Season Tickets are available to park in any Outer car park for all day, or 5 hourly and 1-6 days a week for part time working. Please download the Season Ticket form PDF (23 KB).

A 20% discount is offered for purchases of 8 or more season tickets bought in bulk.

Paying on foot

In some of our town centre Premium/Inner car parks, we have introduced a fairer payment system so that you no longer need to estimate how long you think you will park for. The 'pay on foot' system is in Osborn Road multi-storey car park and Market Quay surface car park. It works in this way:

Lost tickets will be charged at the hourly daily rate during charging hours. After 6.30pm Monday to Saturday and 4.00pm Sunday and Bank Holidays, press the information button for assistance. At the barrier and pay stations there is a voice link to the control room in case you need any help.

Pay and display

The rest of our town centre car parks still operate a pay and display system which means you should buy a ticket to cover the time of your stay. It works in this way:
