It is expected that at tonight’s Cabinet meeting the new Tory administration will make good on another of its election promises by stopping all car park charging in Council car parks at 6pm and making them free on public holidays. Also parking permits will be frozen for four years.
Cllr Will Brooks, cabinet member for environment and transport, said: “We are restoring a common-sense approach to parking charges in this borough. Residents have been clobbered with hikes in charges in the recent past and it is about time they were made fairer. We hope these changes will encourage drivers to use our car parks again rather than look for alternatives in nearby residential streets.”
