Car parks in Aberdeenshire

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak parking charges in the council’s off-street car-parks and associated enforcement has been suspended for the foreseeable period. The decision has been taken to alleviate any concerns that members of the public may have had with touching the machines and to reduce the need for our staff in attending them.

A pay and display ticket or cashless parking payment is valid in any car park within the same town, during the period for which payment has been made.

All car parks are accessible at all times, unless there is a specific event which uses the car parking area.

ChargePlace Scotland provides a map of electrical vehicle charge points and information about these charge points. You must adhere to the local parking restrictions when charging your vehicle at a charge point. Also your vehicle may only be left at a charge point during the period taken to charge your vehicle’s battery. For assistance, contact the ChargePlace Scotland helpline.
