We would like to advise supporters of the system in place to book their blue badge parking for home match days.
Bury supporters can request a space on the car park by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0161 764 4881 (Opt. 2). There are 15 spaces available for home supporters, and 5 for away supporters, and availability for each will be operated, as it has all season, on a first-come, first-served basis. This will take immediate effect and as such will be in operation for the Blackpool game.
Supporter Liaison Officer Ben Miles explains: “As a blue badge holder myself, I fully understand that people want and need to be able to park as closely as possible when coming to a match. We would love to be able to accommodate everybody with a blue badge, however we are like anywhere else in that we are limited with the number of spaces available. It is recommended that car parks with over 50 spaces should allow at least 4% for blue badge holders. As our car park has 131 spaces, the 20 spaces we designate equates to over 15% - more than 3 times the minimum recommendation”.
“Jackie Melia has been booking the spaces for us since the start of the season but has decided to step down. I’d like to thank Jackie for taking on this role on a voluntary basis and for all the work she has put into it. Whilst Lynne will be taking the bookings moving forward, if anyone has anyone questions regarding the system they can be directed to me using email@example.com or by calling 0161 764 4881.”
All supporters, whether blue badge holders or not, can also park on Phoenix House car park. This is a 2 minute walk from the stadium and is located halfway down Brierley Street. There is a cost of £5 per car, and the car park is secured and covered by CCTV.
We’d like to thank all supporters in advance for their understanding and confirm that bookings can only be made on a game by game basis and bookings for the season cannot be accommodated.
