In July 2019 we announced parking management would begin shortly within our Car Park. It has taken some time, however we wanted to ensure we picked a system that best suited our customers’ needs and allows us to free up spaces currently taken by cars left on site all day, depriving our valued customers of a space when they arrive to shop. JH Haskins have now partnered up with Park with Ease.
Established in 2012, Park with Ease is the UKs ethical parking management system. Its aim is simple; to make parking as user-friendly and fair as possible and eradicate the issues associated with traditional parking systems such as fines and penalties.
On entering the Retail Park the intelligent camera system will record your vehicles number plate and take a time stamp of entry, therefore no ticket is required saving time and helping the environment. To make payment, simply enter your car registration at one of our payment kiosks located at the main Haskins entrance. You will then be prompted with details of required payment. This can be completed by either cash or card.
Once payment has been completed, you can leave the Retail Park. If you have forgotten to pay, you can make payment up to 48 hours after via mobile or online. We are pleased to announce that our improved management of the car park will begin in January 2020 offering FREE parking for 90 minutes then £1 per hour in half hourly increments offering the cheapest parking options available in town.

- Why have Haskins stopped offering Free Parking Spaces? Haskins have never offered free car parking.
