Dundee City Council has made the decision to suspend all pay-and-display and pay-on-foot parking charges for the time being. 
Dundee City Council staff will continue to enforce all other parking restrictions (including limited waiting) to ensure the free flow of traffic and that no vehicles are parked dangerously or causing an obstruction for other road users or pedestrians. They will also respond to complaints from the public about unsafe parking. (update 15 Jan).

The Dundee City Council car parks are generally not suitable for motorhomes. East Whale Lane car park is the most suitable but please contact 01382 432095 to make arrangements prior to parking. Note - you are not permitted to use the vehicle for sleeping, camping or cooking whilst parked in any Dundee City Council car park.

CCTV is in operation within the city centre and covers some of the car parks listed. Only service vehicles, at certain times of the day, are allowed through the "City Centre Pedestrian Zone". All other city centre through traffic must use the Inner Ring Road. The Dundee Partnership investment is enhancing the City as a regional centre, attracting shoppers and tourists from Tayside, Fife and beyond.
