Car parking charges to rise for first time in three years

Posted: 19/08/2011 14:06:32

Herefordshire Council is to raise car parking in Leominster for the first time in three years but free car parking will still be available in the Etnam Street car park and in the Central Area.

There will be free parking after 6pm and on Bank Holidays but charges will be introduced for Sudnay parking, in line with neighbouring authorities.

Parking on a Sunday will be free in Etnam Street and the Central Area and will be capped at £2 for all other council-owned car parks.

Councillor Adrian Blackshaw, Herefordshire Council’s cabinet member for highways, transportation and waste, said: “People using car parks in Leominster have paid the same prices for the past three years despite rising inflation and the increase in VAT from 17.5 per cent to 20 per cent.

“We need to raise charges so we can continue to maintain the car parks to a high standard as well as ensuring we can cope with budgetary pressures following the Government’s reduction in funding.

“The fact people can still park all day in Leominster for £1 is incredible value for money when compared with neighbouring towns such as Ludlow where it could be £4.80 in Ludlow and £3 in Tenbury Wells.

“We realise car parks are vital to the vitality of the town and have kept the increases to a reasonable level as well as keeping evenings and Bank Holidays free. We have also kept the short-stay parking in the central area free of charge as this means more spaces will be available for people needing to access town centre shops and services,” he added.

The new charges will be advertised prior to coming into effect on November 1, 2011.
