Because my vehicle is wide I cannot fit in 1 space? What can I do? 

If you find your vehicle is encroaching 2 parking bays, you will need to buy an additional ticket to cover your vehicle for the 2 bays you are using in the car park. 

I have a motorcycle, where can I park and do I have to pay for my stay?

A number of our carparks accommodate motorcycles by offering motorcycle bays, for more information please follow the link provided. https://www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/car-parks/parking/. If you park in a motorcycle bay you will not be required to pay for your stay in the car park.

Our Long Stay Car Parks offer the overstay facility; this ticket can be purchased at the machine by the public if you have received a PCN for an expired pay and display ticket. The overstay ticket can only be purchased within the 1st hour of the expiry of the pay and display ticket.
