Field Lane & Kimberlow Car Park – Pre Paid Barrier Exit Tickets (department use only)
Heslington East, Field Lane and Kimberlow Car Park has a Barrier system installed. Access to these car parks are via Hull Road.
Heslington East Permit Holders should use their Kaba card provided to access the Car Parks. This will need to be presented against the barrier terminal to move the barrier arm into the open position. The same procedure is used to exit the car park. Permit Holders will still need to display their existing car park permit in the vehicle window. If the Permit Holder has already been issued a ‘Kaba’ card to access their offices etc, then the same card will be able to operate the barrier. This card will work without needing to carry out the daily card validating process..
If the Heslington East Permit Holder does not currently hold a ‘Kaba’ card a new card will be issued with your ‘paper’ parking permit.
If you lose your or forget your card, you will be required to take a paper ticket and pay as a visitor until your card is returned.
In the event of problems with your card exiting the car park there is an intercom button on the barrier terminal which is available 24 hours.
Access to parking Field Lane and Kimberlow Car Park on Heslington East is via Grimston Bar Park and Ride on Hull Road.
Subject to space avalibility visitors seeking to park in the car parks will be able to gain entry by taking a paper ticket from the barrier terminal. This will move the barrier arm into the open position and allow access to search for an available space. Before leaving the car park the visitor will need to pay for their parking at the pay on foot machine. The machine is located near the motorcycle storage at the bottom end of the car park. The Machine accepts £2, £1, 50p, 20p, 10p. The charge will be appropriate to the length of stay. Click here to see charges. In addition, between the hours of 18:00 and 24:00 Monday - Friday, and 18:00 Friday - 24:00 Sunday, parking is free in the pay on foot carparks. Note that permit-only car parks are still reserved for permit holders during these times.
Visitors will then need the paper ticket to exit the car park - this needs to be inserted into the barrier terminal, and as long as the parking has been paid for, the barrier arm will operate.
Visitors are able to park in Field Lane and Kimberlow Car Park for the maximum of 45 minutes without charge. The ticket will operate the barrier arm without having to be presented at the Pay on Foot machine as long as it’s within the allocated time.
If access is required to drop off/deliver heavy objects etc. this will be available. To access the cluster, take a paper ticket from the barrier terminal. As long as the visit is no longer than 45 minutes you will be able to use the same ticket to exit the cluster without charge. If you feel that your drop off will take longer than 45 minutes then the Hub reception must be informed and prior arrangements made.
Hub reception telephone number 01904 32 5120 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If the visit is longer than the 45 minutes, it is suggested that the Field Lane Car Park should be used. Any stay over 45 minutes on the cluster without prior arrangements will incur a Parking Charge Notice which is £80.00 for further details about Parking Charge Notices click here.
Parking spaces are provided on the cluster for visitors who are blue badge holders or hold a University of York disabled badge..
If you are aware of the visitor then the Hub reception should be informed as soon as possible so that a parking bay can be allocated and reserved for their entire visit. On arrival, the pre booked visitor can either press the intercom and announce their arrival and the barrier arm lifted, or take a paper ticket which will allow access. The paper ticket will need validating by the hub reception to enable the visitor to exit the site for stays longer than 45 minutes or press the intercom and the barrier arm lifted to allow exit.
