Car park prices consultation

Consultation runs from

31 October 2017, 12:00am to 21 November 2017, 11:59pm

Introduction and background

We wish to consult with as wide a cross section of the community as possible to highlight the changes we would like to make to car park prices and season ticket costs on 1 April 2018.

We continue to look for effective ways to manage congestion, especially during the 8 to 10am morning rush hour, and so this year propose the introduction of an additional charge for vehicles parking between these times together with a high increase in car park season tickets for business users.

We hope this will help to encourage the use of vehicles in the less busy periods of the day, and ideally help people transfer to alternative methods of accessing the city that cause less congestion and pollution.

Next steps

The Executive Councillor for Planning Policy and Transport will consider any objections to these proposals and if necessary, recommend further amendments.

If the proposals are approved, parking prices will change on 1 April 2018.

Following the consultation, and before they are implemented, the new parking charges will be advertised in the local press and on notices in the car parks during March 2018.
