Car Parks in Portscatho & Gerrans

Being a small coastal village the roads in Portscatho tend to be narrow with limited on street parking. Where on street parking is available we ask visitors to make sure they do not block access to properties or driveways and allow space for lorries and buses to get through.This is particularly important in the Square where Ralphs has large lorries making regular deliveries and on Monday when the Council’s contractors empty the bins. Parking restrictions are enforced by traffic wardens.

Disabled Parking

If you are a blue badge holder with Nil and Disabled tax discs and planning a visit to Cornwall, you can find out more information from the Cornwall Council website.
