Who is Liftshare and what do they do?

The Council have contracted with Liftshare Ltd, the UK's leading car share provider, to offer a lift share service to Council staff. Liftshare enables organised car sharing by connecting people travelling in the same direction so they can arrange to travel together and share the costs, whilst reducing congestion and pollution at the same time. With the work being done on the development of the Town Hall parking availability will be reduced and alternative arrangements will need to be made.  

There are designated Liftshare parking bays at the Town Hall, currently located to the south of the Assembly Hall, which will be reserved only for those using the scheme. You must sign up to Liftshare and make all sharing arrangements through the site to benefit from the allocated parking.

In order to see how Liftshare will use your data you please refer to the Liftshare Privacy Notice

Find details on the benefit to you and how to join.
