Settle Market Place
If you intend to use the Market Place or the surrounding streets to park, make sure you have a disc. Display the time you arrive on the disc. Failure to display a timed disc will result in a parking fine.
Parking discs produced and issued from another Town’s or Cities can be used in the disk parking zone. The parking disc does not have to be issued by Settle Town Council.
The cost of producing the disk is quite expensive and the council would like to encouraged visitors who will only require the disc for less than a week or so, to return it for re circulation.
Please note Tuesdays is Settle Market day and there is no parking on the Market Place between the hours of 6:00 am to 6:00pm on that day.
