Our new Village Car Park
Your Parish Council’s Commitment
As part of the agreement reached between Victory Housing and Knapton Parish Council for the new housing development on what was the Millenium Field, Victory Housing kindly agreed to replace the old car park with a new lockable one.
Completed to a high standard, the car park has been officially handed over to the Parish Council under a long term licence agreement which was signed on behalf of the council by the Chairman and Vice-Chairman.
When the terms of the agreement were negotiated, both the owner (Victory Housing) and the lessee (Knapton Parish Council) strongly agreed that the council should monitor and manage it’s usage to ensure it’s continual availability for the short-term parking of vehicles by visitors to Knapton and users of the Village Hall.
In accordance with the agreement, the council have installed two signs, located at the entrance and the rear of the car park, which are both highly visible and make the terms of its use very clear.
Whilst able to be locked at any time without notice and at the sole discretion of the Parish Council, it is hoped that the car park will remain free and permanently open for its intended users.

Since an OPP can only be obtained by applying to the Parish Clerk, it ensures that they have the necessary permission from the Parish Council to park there, for the nights displayed on the permit.
Penalty for non-compliance
Owners of vehicles parked overnight in the car park that do not have an OPP may find that;
- their vehicle is towed away by an authorised contractor
- their vehicle is stored in a secure compound by that contractor
- all costs to recover the vehicle will be entirely the responsibility of the vehicle owner
- the vehicle will not be released until those costs are paid in full to the contractor
