Public Car Parks Update

Report of the Director of the Built Environment.


Members considered a report of the Director of the Built Environment which provided an update on the short, medium and long-term strategies in the last  major report on public off-street car parking, approved in November 2016.  Members noted that, since the report, the financial position of the car parks had improved, following the first of two agreed tariff increases.  Members expressed disappointment in that this report was not well structured and asked for recommendations to be clearer at the front of the report.




1.     The second phase in the hourly tariff increase in respect of Smithfield Car Park, to £3.50, as previously agreed by the Markets Committee,  be implemented in April 2019.


2.     For non-zero emission capable vehicles, agree to introduce a three-year phased increase in residential season tickets to align them with the rate per sqm, currently £335 per annum.


3.     The overnight parking rate for Smithfield Car Park, of £36, be amended so that it applies seven days a week.
