Mayor opens centre:mk’s new 1,400 space car parkNov 28, 2018
The £30 million building sits behind the John Lewis store and has the latest technology including an automatic number plate recognition system that works with a new app due to launch in January that will take automatic payment.
There are also smart parking bay sensors and ‘find my car’ technology to guide visitors to available bays and later remind them where they parked.

Parking charges begin at £1 for two hours. Sunday parking is £2 for the day and parking is free after 6pm seven days a week.
Centre:mk’s centre director Kevin Duffy said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new multi-story car park which has been designed with our customers’ needs in mind whilst also benefitting the wider local community; with more mother and baby spaces, more disabled parking, more motorcycle spots and more electric vehicle charging points.”
Kate Broadhurst, partner and head of branch at John Lewis’s centre:mk store, said:“As a longstanding retailer in the centre, we are delighted that our customers will now be able to make the most of state of the art technology and enjoy cost-effective parking, with more choice when it comes to the spaces available.
“Our aim is to make sure our customers have a comfortable and enjoyable experience; we feel this visionary new parking facility will greatly contribute to this.”
