An important source of the Charity's income is the covenant it receives from the Walberswick Car Park Limited (WCPL).  WCPL operates as an independent company with its own Business Operations Manager and volunteer Board of Directors.   The Ferry Road and Cliff Fields Car Parks are on Charity land and each year WCPL rents the land and covenants 100% of its operating profit to the Charity.   The responsibility of the WCPL is to balance: 

  • Customer service:  to those who use the car parks in order to visit Walberswick and the surrounding area
  • Traffic management: in particular to lessen on-street parking — for the benefit and safety of our community
  • Profit:  so as to maximise the covenant to the Charity to support its good works

Everyone who parks in Walberswick Car Parks is directly helping to support the Walberswick Common Lands Charity.

The Walberswick Car Parks are now RingGo only — no cash or card payments.   Please download RingGo to your smart phone in advance to simply, quickly and safely purchase your parking upon arrival. 

As of 26 November 2023, WCPL has regrettably had to end its long practice of accepting cash for the purchase of parking tickets.  Unfortunately, the Walberswick Car Parks, like many small businesses, has found itself unable to find banking services that are willing to handle cash-heavy transactions.   Moreover, even those few banks that are willing to accept limited cash deposits are closing down all nearby branches.  This situation has made it extraordinarily difficult, costly and daunting for small businesses like ours to accept and deposit cash.  Therefore, we had to take the difficult decision to end our cash payment ticket machines.   This past summer we replaced our machine card payments with RingGo which has worked extremely well in a relatively short amount of time.  We will now, of necessity, move to RingGo only rather than allowing the purchase of tickets using coin.  We regret that the changes in the banking and finance industry have made this step necessary, but it is now the only way to responsibly and safely operate our business.  We appreciate the patronage of all our customers and thank them for their understanding and support.   

Please download the RingGo app on to your phone before coming to park to make it very easy to use.  On arrival, you can pay for your parking comfortably and quickly from your car without queuing at the machines.    For those who do not have a smart phone, there is a phone number on the RingGo signs at the car parks which you can call instead to make payment.     Tariff information is available directly on the RingGo App and on signs in the Car Parks.
