Parking for disabled people is available at each car park and outside the Tesco Metro & McColls on Olney Market Place.

For those using Stanley Court (where the Co-op is located) there is a two hour maximum stay. The entrance is from Weston Road.

Please note that market day on Thursday means car parking is more limited - not least because the Market Place is not available. 

The Market Place is also in use for Olney Pancake Race day, Dickens and for the Sunday market on the first Sunday of the month.
