Levels 2 and 2A of the Paul Street Car Park in Taunton have now re-opened. This will provide an additional 37 car parking spaces for Blue Badge holders and 67 general use spaces, and will enable the Shopmobility Taunton service to resume.
The Council has been working with the Orchard Shopping Centre and Compass Wellbeing to ensure further levels of the town centre car park can be opened again as Covid-19 restrictions ease.
Customers will be able to use the Shopmobility service run by Compass Disability Services, from Tuesday 4 August. Opening times will be 11.30am – 3.30pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. More information can be found on their website.
Additional safety signage will be placed on the pillars of levels 2 and 2A and at the pedestrian entrance and exits to Paul Street and High Street which will remain closed due to the limited width of stairwells and lift capacity. These will, however, be retained as emergency evacuation and access points.
Somerset West and Taunton owned car parks will stay FREE until at least the end of August to support the re-opening of High Streets to help rejuvenate the local economy.
