The Trust have announced that the popular levy payer car park passes for the year commencing 1st June 2023 for the Hills and Commons will be available to purchase online from the 9th May 2023.
The levy payer passes are available to residents of the town of Malvern, and the parishes of Colwall, Guarlford, Malvern Wells, Mathon and West Malvern who pay a contribution towards the Trust as part of their council tax.
Levy payer passes will cost £7.00 each (plus £1.00 for postage) and will be valid from the 1st June 2023 until the 31st May 2024. Those wishing to purchase a levy payer’s pass will be asked to provide the following:
- a copy of their Council Tax bill which details the levy to the Trust as proof of their address and eligibility for these concessionary passes.
- a copy of the V5C document relating to every vehicle for which they are applying to demonstrate that the vehicle is registered to the eligible address.
Up to three passes can be purchased per household and a V5C document must be provided for every vehicle. Failure to provide the correct information and evidence of eligibility will result in delay to the pass application.
Any Levy payer passes purchased before May will only be valid until 31st May 2023.
For those unable to purchase their pass online, the office will be open to purchase a pass in person. Opening hours for purchasing a ticket from the MHT office are Tuesday to Friday 9am to 3:30pm.
An Annual Pass is available for those who live outside the levy paying areas and is good value for frequent visitors to the Hills and Commons. An Annual Pass, valid for 12 months from the date of purchase, can be obtained from the Malvern Hills Trust’s office for £50.00. A pass for a second vehicle at the same household can be purchased at a reduced rate of £25.00. Annual parking pass application forms are available.
Pay and display tickets are also available for £5.25 per day with a reduced evening charge of £3.00 after 6pm.
The contribution made by the public through the purchase of parking passes is an essential source of income that supports the charity’s work caring for the Hills and Commons. This support helps the Malvern Hills Trust to protect the ancient archaeology, conserve the habitats and species and keep the Hills open and accessible for all to enjoy.
