Brookes has implemented a new policy to manage all car parks on its sites. This will impact the use of the astroturf.
Previously, outside of peak hours (16.31 – 06.59, Monday to Friday, including weekends and public and bank holidays) parking was permitted at any Oxford Brookes University car park. Under the new policy this will remain broadly the same; however some charges will be introduced. These are summarised below:
- Sports members wishing to park will be required to purchase a parking permit (currently £10 annually). Parking will then be free outside of peak hours
- Occasional sports users (those without sports membership) may park at any site during non-peak hours. The first two hours’ parking is free, with stays of longer than two hours attracting a charge.
- All Users will need to input their vehicle registration into the parking machines upon arrival (even if parking within the two-hour free window) to avoid a fine.
Accordingly it’s worth all club members who park at Brookes becoming sports members (without paying any fee) and then buying an annual parking permit to avoid the off peak charges. (Please note: any Oxford Brookes student or staff who also has a sports membership is not permitted to apply for a Brookes Sport and Leisure permit.) The process to apply is detailed on this document – do note it’s a bit complicated and requires a manual response from Brookes, so do not leave it to the last minute!
