Temporary closure at busy Worcester car park for tree removal

Published: 31 January 2024

A busy Worcester city centre car park is set to close for half a day next week so that a diseased tree at its entrance can be safely removed.

The 110-space King Street car park, off Sidbury, will be closed on the morning of Wednesday 7 February until 1pm. No cars will be allowed to enter the car park after 11.59pm the night before.

The closure is taking place so that the 18-foot high ash tree at the entrance can be safely removed. The tree is afflicted by the ash dieback fungus, and needs to be removed to avoid the danger of its branches falling.

The City Council will work with the Worcester Environmental Group to re-use the timber from the tree as part of a play area project.

While the car park is closed, some maintenance work on other trees will also take place. This will create more space for the City Council's cleaning vehicles to be able to cleanse the car park more thoroughly.

Alternative parking is available nearby at the City Council's Clare Street and Commandery Road car parks.
