Free Business Parking Trial Extended

FREE Business Parking – Extended for 2024

*UPDATE* – The ‘Free’ Business Parking Trial has been extended to March 2024.

Over 100 ‘FREE’ parking spaces near Otley town centre are available for the use of retail and service-based business owners and staff.

Wharfedale Farmers Auction Market has generously agreed to allow parking on part of its site at Station Top on weekdays only. Simply access the car park from East Chevin Road, park near the top of Station Road and walk down into the town centre. Signage is in place to direct you and please see the map below.


If shop and business staff use this facility it should free up additional and much needed town centre parking capacity for your customers and clients.


If it is successful it will continue into the future, if the town’s businesses don’t use it then it might not.


Here’s what you need to know:

  • Opening times: Monday to Friday 8am – 5.30pm only (after which time the site is locked and there will be no access until the following weekday at 8am).
  • No access: Before 8am, after 5.30pm and at weekends.
  • Who can park: Free to all Otley business owners and their members of staff
  • Liability: Parking at the driver’s own risk
  • Directions: See Location Map below
