With the introduction of ticketless parking to Ellice Road car park in Oxted in November 2017, we are able to offer Blue Badge holders the opportunity to register one vehicle with us which will give them ticketless access to the car park. Once registered, the Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system will then allow the driver to enter and exit the car park with no need to visit a pay station.
To register with our scheme you will need to provide us with copies of the following:
1. Your Blue Badge (both sides).
2. The number plate of the vehicle you use most when visiting our car parks.
You can provide these documents to our staff at Tandridge District Council Offices - they will take a copy of your documents and register you immediately. Alternatively you can e-mail a copy to customer services and you will receive confirmation that your vehicle details have been added to the ANPR system.
This information will only be used in relation to ANPR and parking charges and will not be provided to anyone else or used for anything else.
Your registration for ticketless parking will be time limited to the date on your Blue Badge. Therefore, when your Blue Badge expires, you will need to re-register.
If the vehicle is using the car park without the Blue Badge holder being present, then the driver will need to go to the pay station to pay in order to exit the car park. If a vehicle is found to be using the free parking within our car parks without the Blue Badge holder present, we will remove the vehicle from the scheme.
If, as a Blue Badge holder, you are not using the car registered on the scheme, please park in the car park as normal and visit the Council Offices. We will issue you with a voucher to enable you to get free parking on that day. Alternatively you can call us on 01883 722000.
Frequently asked questions
1. I am a blue badge holder. Will I still get free parking in Ellice Road car park, Oxted?
Yes. There are two ways to get free parking:
(a) Register a vehicle with us (one vehicle per Blue Badge holder) which will enable the driver to enter and exit our ticketless car park with no need to go to visit a pay station. To register you will need to provide us with copies of your Blue Badge and your number plate. Either bring the documents to Tandridge District Council or e-mail copies to customer services.
(b) Visit Tandridge District Council offices at the end of your visit. You will be given a voucher to scan at the payment machine to provide you with free parking.
2. If I am registered, will I still need to visit a payment machine?
No. Once your vehicle is registered simply enter and exit the car park. The cameras will register your number plate, know you are a Blue Badge holder and let you exit automatically.
3. Why am I only allowed to register one car? I have more than one car.
It is not possible to cater for all the possible change of situations or alternative vehicles being used, therefore please register the car you most regularly use. If you visit the car park in a different vehicle, either pay for parking at the payment machine or visit the Council Offices and we will provide you with a discount code to scan at the payment machine for free parking.
4. What happens if I get a lift from someone else? Am I still able to park in a disabled bay and get free parking?
Providing you display your Blue Badge, you will still be able to park in the allocated bays. Either pay for parking at the payment machine or visit the Council Offices who will provide you with a discount code to scan at the payment machine for free parking.
5. I am a visitor to Oxted, but have a Blue Badge. How am I able to get free parking?
Please visit the Council Offices with a copy or photograph of your Blue Badge and we will provide you with a discount code to scan at the payment machine for free parking.
6. Do I still need to display my badge?
In order to park in the marked disabled bays, you will still need to display your Blue Badge.
