Barrow Borough Council does not have control over the
operation of private car parks; it is up to the operator to ensure
they comply with requirements on Health and Safety, etc. as well as
setting their own prices.
There is a pay and display car park at Barrow
railway station, but at present all other private car parks are
free. Many private car parks are for the use of customers only and
some make use of wheel clamping. Most private car parks e.g.
local supermarket car parks, impose a time limit and Penalty
Notices are issued on their behalf by private enforcement
