Dudley parking permits can be purchased for parking in Dudley Council car parks on a 12 or 3 month basis.
If you don’t have a parking permit, or if Dudley parking permits are not valid for your chosen parking space, you may need to purchase a Pay and Display ticket.
Pay and Display bays are parking spaces with ticket machines. You can find all the information you need regarding parking charges in Dudley, the hours of operation and maximum stay periods on the front of the machine. The time your vehicle can stay in the Pay and Display until is printed on the ticket, so make sure you aren’t late!
Dudley parking enforcement is strict, and we all dread getting a Penalty Charge Notice through the letterbox. That’s why we at YourParkingSpace only list parking spaces that you are entitled to park in - so you can leave your car worry-free!

One of Dudley’s most beloved attractions is the Black Country Living Museum. Period houses, shops, workshops and public buildings have been dismantled and rebuilt brick by brick to create authentic 19th and 20th century streets. Visitors can get a taste of school life in an early 20th century classroom, try out an antique fairground ride, or even head underground in the footsteps of a 19th century coal miner.

The Blue Badge scheme is a national system of parking concessions for those with disabilities, whether they are the car’s driver or a passenger. Your Blue Badge lets you park closer to your destination, and disabled people are exempt from Dudley parking charges in any of the Council’s car parks. The majority of these car parks have specific disabled bays, but Blue Badge holders are not restricted to these bays and can park in any bay free of charge, making disabled parking in Dudley even easier.
Disabled parking in Dudley Council’s short stay car parks is subject to a three-hour time limit. For all-day parking in Dudley for disabled visitors, try one of the long stay car parks where you can stay for as long as you need, subject to the opening times of the car park.
Remember to always display your Blue Badge clearly, or risk one of the notorious Dudley parking fines!
