The parking prices used to have an unusual (and rather expensive) tier system, but it has now reverted back to the standard 2-or-24 hours system.

A westbound Costa Drive Thru had been planned to join the eastbound one, but the permission for this has now expired.

Moto currently hold planning permission to install an electric vehicle charging hub at the back of the westbound car park which is set to include 6 GRIDSERVE charging points and 10 Tesla Superchargers. They are also seeking to build two new Changing Places facilities, one on each side.
