We’re pleased to announce we have added what3words locations to our website to help you plan your journeys.
Every 3 metre square has a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. This what3words address will direct you to the exact location of where to enter our car parks.
How to find our car parks using what3words on the NCP website
You can find the what3words address for each one of our car parks on the relevant car park page, or search for a car park page here. For example, the entrance to Nottingham Stoney Street car park can be found at ///teams.added.snow.
Then select your preferred navigation option: City Mapper, Google Maps, Bing Maps or Waze. You can also enter the what3words address into the free what3words app.

Help us to keep our car parks safe
In an emergency you can use a what3words address to tell 999 exactly where to send help. Local councils in the UK are also increasingly accepting what3words addresses to verify reports of non-emergency incidents such as fly-tipping, vandalism or public infrastructure damage.
