Osborn Road Multi Storey Car Park is now closed

Fareham Borough Council would like to remind residents that Osborn Road Multi Storey Car Park is now closed ahead of its scheduled demolition on 8 January.

The car park is officially closed from today, 2 January, to allow the relocation of the team and equipment prior to the site’s handover to Neilcott Construction Ltd.

Once demolished, the multi storey will be replaced with a surface car park benefiting from larger car parking spaces and four electric vehicle charging points. There is capacity to add a further 12 electric vehicle charging points if required. This new Fareham Live car park will be open in 2024 in time for the first large performances at the new arts and entertainment venue, Fareham Live.

Residents are reminded that alternative parking can be found nearby at Fareham Shopping Centre multi storey car park, which leads directly into the shopping centre. For those who need help to be independently mobile in the town centre, Shopmobility can be found within the shopping centre next to Three Joes and opposite Millets, offering mobility equipment for hire.

Cllr Seán Woodward, Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, said: “I am delighted that the work is about to begin to replace the underused and outdated Osborn Road multi storey car park with the new Fareham Live surface car park. Fareham Shopping Centre multi storey car park is an excellent alternative for town centre parking while the work is taking place, with plenty of disabled spaces available and an easy route into the shopping centre itself, where Shopmobility can be found for anyone who requires their services.

“I would remind residents that our town centre car parks provide more than 1,000 car parking spaces within walking distance of the shopping centre, and the number of spaces will increase significantly once the new Fareham Live car park is complete.”
