The Octagon Car Park
There are 700 spaces available in the Octagon's carpark including 35 marked disabled parking bays.
Car park prices:
Up to 2 hours £1.00
2 – 3 hours £1.50
3 – 4 hours £2.50
4 – 12 hours £6.00
On Sundays and bank holidays it is £1.00 to park all day. There is no parking charge on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.
To ensure The Octagon Centre is reducing its carbon footprint, they have adopted a paperless parking system. When you arrive at the car park, a camera will take a photograph of your number plate which records the time you entered. On departure, the pay machines will ask you to enter your registration number and your payment will appear on the screen. The camera on exit will then recognise your car and raise the barrier once the car park fee is paid in full.
Car Park Loyalty Scheme
For every 20 paid visits to the centre's car park, drivers will automatically receive one unlimited parking stay FREE of charge.
There is a free to use ATM Cash Machine located in Poundland on the ground floor.
In 2015 we achieved net zero waste to landfill through improved segregation and recycling streams. Our waste management plan concentrates on specific areas for improvement to ensure that we continue on track with this continuing objective. We segregate and recycle the waste collected from our on-mall located rubbish bins.
We monitor and collate data to ensure that we operate efficiently, identifying trends for analysis and initiatives for further improvement so that we can continue to reduce our energy consumption. We regularly retender to get the best possible long term deal for our supply of gas and electricity.
We realise water is a precious commodity and are keen to reduce consumption and implement rain water harvesting and grey water recycling initiatives at some point in the future. All taps used within the publicly accessible areas are designed not to waste water in normal use.
We routinely engage with our community partners to facilitate space and opportunities for them to increase and capitalise on local exposure. As part of our events programme we include an element of charitable giving whenever possible and appropriate. Each year we hold a Christmas Tree Festival which engages widely with the local community. The Octagon Shopping Centre also supports Burton in Bloom with sponsorship of the floral displays on St Peter's Bridge.
We provide facilities for both visitors and employees designed to encourage alternative environmentally friendly transport choices. There are publicly accessible bike racks by Costa Coffee and Iceland as well as facilities for staff using this means of transport to reach their places of work.
