What are the main contact numbers for my local Council?

Car Parking

Car parks in Bakewell are either owned and operated by Derbyshire Dales District Council or are privately controlled. Parking on the public highway is the responsibility of Derbyshire County Council.

Bakewell Town Council does not own or control any car parks and, as such, we are unable to assist if you have received a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

For help with a PCN you should follow the instructions on the notice. You will find more information at http://www.parksmarter.org.uk/.
