Anyone wishing to use Northwick Park’s car park will have to book the space first, even if they are not paying.

From next Monday everyone who wants to use the car park off Capital Ring, Sudbury, during the week has to register through their mobile phone through Brent Council’s cashless partner RingGo.

Although the car park will be free for the first three hours, customers are not permitted to return within two hours. Any stay longer than three hours will cost £7.50.

Free parking at the weekend will remain without the need to book.

Northwick Park has a capacity for 96 cars including three disabled bays. The charged hours are between 8am and 6pm from Monday to Friday but not Bank Holidays.

Brent Council runs 11 car parks across the borough and this is the first of a host of changes to how they will charge.

Cllr George Crane, lead member for environment at Brent Council, said: “Demand for car parking at Northwick Park is very high and often, those wishing to make use of the council’s sporting facilities, are unable to find a space. The changes are designed to manage demand.
