Wythenshawe Town Centre is offering free parking to NHS workers until further notice as a small gesture of thanks during the Covid 19 crisis.

Wythenshawe Town Centre is at the heart of the local community and will be running a scheme to assist front line workers during the current COVID-19 crisis. There is currently free parking to all NHS staff in Asda’s multi-story car park. Health workers can park in the car park as normal, but must ensure they have their NHS ID ready to be presented if required. The Centre has also abolished the 3-hour maximum car park stay for the benefit of NHS frontline workers.

The car park can be accessed via the spiral entrance ramp leading from Rowlandsway. The free parking will not apply to our surface car parks where will be continuing to operate the two hour maximum stay restrictions.

In line with Government guidance on 23rd March 2020, Wythenshawe Town Centre is now closed for all retailers except those providing essential goods and services – food stores, grocers, pharmacies, banks and post offices.

The Centre is also running a campaign to encourage social distancing at the Centre in line with advice from Public Health England. Both online and onsite, the Centre is displaying material encouraging shoppers to respect Government advice to adhere to social distancing which is crucial to save lives and protect the NHS.

Wythenshawe Town Centre is at the heart of our local community and as such we are fully committed to supporting local people during the current health crisis. We are thoroughly grateful for the hard work of our frontline workers at this crucial time, that’s why we are offering a free parking permit to NHS workers until further notice.”
