The cost of parking in the borough’s car parks is set to rise from around 25% to 300% over the next three years. On 8 July the Conservative cabinet decided to recommend that there would be increases across the board. This evening the full council approved the cabinet’s recommendation using its Conservative majority.
I voted against. My view is that car-park pricing should be developed using a clear and understandable logic that everyone could understand – even if they did not agree with some of the outcomes. The current charging policy is not consistent across the borough nor it is based on clearly defined principles. For more details click here. As ever, your thoughts are very welcome.
