Car park charges intended at Cley Marshes


Monday 16 December, 2019


Car park charges for some visitors are intended to be introduced at Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Cley and Salthouse Marshes, to help manage the site and balance the conservation needs of the nature reserve with use of the site by visitors.

NWT has applied for planning permission to install two pay and display machines and signage in the main centre car park, and one at the Cley Beach road carpark. If successful, the system will come into effect at Easter.

At present visitors using the carpark at NWT Cley and Salthouse Marshes are not required to pay for parking. Visitors using the NWT Beach carpark are required to pay for parking from Easter to October when the car park is staffed by an attendant.

Under the intended new system, charging will only operate between the hours of 10am and 5pm. Parking will be free for the following:
  • Members of Norfolk Wildlife Trust
  • Residents of Cley and Salthouse villages
  • Non-members who purchase a ticket to the paid entry part of the nature reserve
  • Non-members who are attending a paid event
  • Blue badge holders
Chief Executive of Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Pamela Abbott said: “Our members and people who are visiting the nature reserve and those attending our events will continue to be able to park free of charge. The car park fee will contribute to the work required for the upkeep of car parks, footpaths and management of the reserve.”
