Gloucester Rugby have been working closely over the summer with the City Council, the local Police and Gloucestershire Highways to help alleviate parking issues in and around the stadium on matchdays.
Gloucestershire Highways has been tasked with reviewing existing parking restrictions in the Kingsholm area and Gloucester Rugby is obviously a key player in this process.
The task is to address both week day and matchday parking issues in the Kingsholm area and Gloucester Rugby are contributing towards the preparation of a Traffic Regulation Order which is required to implement new restrictions and amend existing restrictions.
In time for the 2009-10 season, Gloucester Rugby have taken steps to reduce congestion in the area on matchdays by joining forces with the Council to secure seasonal parking spaces within the parking site 3 area of St Oswalds Retail Park.
The car park is within a 10 minute walk of Kingsholm Stadium and offers a guaranteed space. For members unable to walk, the stewards will allow drop offs in the stadium car park.
A seasonal pass includes 11 Guinness Premiership home matches and 3 Heineken Cup matches for £75. Priority booking would be given on extra matches. Terms and conditions will apply.
