Following the closure of the Covent Garden multi-storey carpark on 12 February, extensive work has been completed to make the building safe.

Work has also been undertaken to ensure that all possible access points have been secured. This has included the installation of anti-climb mesh panelling. CCTV and fire alarms will remain in place for security purposes until the demolition programme begins. 

Warwick District Council is keen to advise residents, businesses and visitors of the location of alternative car parks in and around Leamington Spa town centre.

Although parking spaces are no longer available at Covent Garden multi-storey, all carparks managed by the Council including:

  • St Peter’s Multi-Storey
  • Chandos Street
  • Bedford Street
  • Rosefield Street

still have some capacity, with plenty of spaces available at Adelaide Bridge at both weekends and during the week.

The Council would also like to remind motorists that they can take advantage of the car parks in Old Town including with lower rates of £3 per day:

  • Court Street
  • Bath Place
  • Packington Place
  • Station Approach

 Additionally, there is free parking available at the Council offices at Riverside House, Milverton Hill from Monday to Friday.

Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services Councillor Moira-Ann Grainger commented:

“Since Covent Garden multi-storey closed, officers have been carefully monitoring carpark usage numbers throughout the town, to identify any hotspots or issues and will continue to work closely with the local community and businesses as they adjust to the closure.”

“I would strongly encourage local people to take advantage of the lesser used carparks in Old Town, with lower daily car park charges and the free parking available at Riverside House, particularly for longer stays.”

Details of the Warwick District Council operated carparks in Leamington Spa are available on the website.
