Church Street Access and Drop-off
Private vehicles can no longer access Market Street and Church Street after 1030 and before 1800 on any day without incurring an automatic £100 Penalty Charge Notice. There are no exceptions. This means, for instance, that you cannot drop-off or pick-up in front of the theatre for a matinee performance. Should you have mobility issues, Blackpool Council advises you to use public transport or taxis as buses and taxis are exempt from the restrictions. Further information can be located on the Blackpool Council website.
Other Options: The Blue Badge scheme provides parking benefits for disabled people throughout the UK who travel either as drivers or as passengers. A Blue Badge entitles the holder to concessions for ‘On-street’ parking, including free use of parking meters and pay and display bays, and exemption from limits on parking times (restrictions apply).
