Parking and Access Trial
Clumber Park is a special and important place; one of the UK’s prestigious Grade 1 registered parks. We are currently undertaking a 10 year, £9 million investment programme, Clumber Park Revitalised; our focus is on conservation and improving our visitor experience for the thousands of visitors we welcome every year.
The current access and parking arrangements for visitors are having a detrimental impact on nature conservation and important historic views and vistas. The arrival experience for visitors can often be poor, particularly at busy times, and there can be conflict of use with cars, cyclists and pedestrians all sharing the same roads in busy central areas.
To resolve this we need to act so that future supporters can enjoy this special place we enjoy today. To do this we need to rethink the way people access the site, how they get around the site and where they park.
So from Thursday 31 May to Sunday 3 June we will be undertaking a parking and access trial including:
a flexible multi-lane system with NT member fast track
a new temporary car park
allocating the current visitor car parks adjacent to the Stableyard and Walled Kitchen Gardens as accessible car parks for less mobile visitors
restricting parking in some grass areas which are showing significant signs of wear and tear
providing an electric buggy to help visitors get around
The trial is taking place in an area which is currently being used as our barbeque site. Therefore over this period there will be limited space available for barbecuing.
Please do let us know what you think during the trial so we can get this right for everyone. Email us email@example.com
