Visitor Parking NEW
As from 29 April 2013, any department issuing a visitor permit must advise parking (add @essex.ac.uk) of the vehicle registration number, permit number issued and the expected date of use of the visitor. This is to ensure that your guests do not receive a parking enforcement notice for non payment when parking in the new Multi Decked Car Park.
All departments are required to;
· Collect and forward this information to parking (add @essex.ac.uk) when the permit is issued; or
· ensure the visitors vehicle registration plate (number plate) is taken when your guest arrives and then emailed to Estate Management at parking (add @essex.ac.uk) the day of use.

The University introduced a new car parking charging system in October 2004, which was revised in October 2009 following extensive consultation. The income from car parking is used to support the administration of the system and has always been used to provide enhancements for other forms of transport, particularly for cyclists, and to meet some of the transport infrastructure maintenance costs. Income generated from car parking is ring-fenced to support transport infrastructure.
The car parking management system has been developed in conjunction with the Students Union and the Joint Trades Unions on campus.
