Kilham Hall Car Park Update

Due to residents’ concerns regarding the current parking situation on Kilham Lane, the Parish Council discussed the possibility of opening the car park to the public. It was agreed by all members that until 19th July 2021, the car park will open from 9am until 6pm each day, 7 days per week. This situation will be reviewed at each parish council meeting. The future use of the car park, which is primarily for users of the hall, will be discussed prior to 19th July 2021.

We ask that you please take care when manoeuvring around the car park and drive at a maximum speed of 5mph. Users are asked to vacate the car park by 6pm to allow for the gates to be locked.


In line with government guidelines and DMCB's decison to reopen playgrounds the children's playground and items of equipment at Kilham Hall Park are now open. Please adhere to the guidance contained within the notices in order to protect the health and welfare of all users of the park.
