Gloucester Docks Estate is primarily pedestrianised with limited vehicle access reserved for occupiers who require reasonable access for loading / unloading to their premises. The Estate is covered by mobile patrols and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) for the purposes of parking enforcement as required.

General rules


A brief summary of the general rules are as follows:

  1. 30 minutes grace for loading and unloading.
  2. No returns within 2 hours
  3. Contractors (e.g Virgin Media) will need to unload their tools then move their vehicle to an appropriate P&D car park.
  4. Anyone moving in or out is allowed to park removal vehicles etc but must submit the vehicle registration details to me on or to Ash & Co giving at least 48 hours’ notice where possible. If I am on leave or out of the office then instructions will be given for an alternative.
  5. The Docks is a private estate and Disabled drivers are not able to use their blue badges to park anywhere other than designated spaces within set car parks.
  6. As the permits issued are for loading / unloading and not strictly parking they will only be granted between the hours of 7am-11pm so as not to disturb residents. You will need to park hire vehicles being used over a number of days to move etc in a suitable parking space paying any charges that may apply.
  7. Loading requests will not be accepted from contractors direct only form apartment / business owners due to high levels of abuse in the past.
