Car parks in Sandwell

We manage a number of car parks around Sandwell. Some are free to park in, some are pay and display.

Charges apply on pay and display car parks from 8am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday, including bank holidays and other public holidays.

Here is a list of car parks for each of the town shopping areas:

You can buy a monthly or annual parking permit which may save you money if you park regularly in certain pay and display car parks or streets.

Christmas parking

Parking will be free in Sandwell Council car parks on the three Saturdays before Christmas.

Please note this only applies to council car parks and not parking bays or other on-street parking.

The dates for free parking in our car parks are:

  • Saturday 6 December
  • Saturday 13 December, and
  • Saturday 20 December 2014.

New Square car park in West Bromwich is not a council-owned car park and charges will still apply on these dates.

Street parking

Pay and display charges apply to parking in some streets in central West Bromwich.

Most bays are limited to two hours parking at a charge of £1.20 per hour.

Some streets outside West Bromwich also have pay and display parking. The charges and maximum length of parking vary and may be subject to change.  Always check the signs before parking in an on-street parking bay.

Parking for disabled people

We provide free parking spaces in all of our pay and display car parks for Blue Badge holders. A Blue Badge must be displayed.

Parking for Blue Badge holders in the multi-storey car park in West Bromwich is only available on level one.


We have a Shopmobility scheme hiring out wheelchairs and motorised scooters from the ground floor of the Queen's Square multi-storey car park in West Bromwich. For details please ring 0121 553 1943.

Do motorbike users pay for parking?

Motorbikes can park in our car parks for free. Charges apply to motorbikes with sidecars attached.
