Council's car parking charges to be frozen across the district
Cllr Edward Heron, NFDC's portfolio holder for planning and transportation, has reviewed the charges for the 51 car parks the council operates and there will be no price increase for 2017.
Each year, the Planning and Transportation Portfolio Holder reviews the cost of parking clocks and the pay and display charges to consider whether any adjustments should be made. For 2017 Cllr Heron has concluded that, as the existing charging structure is competitive with neighbouring authorities, and the parking clock scheme represents good value, the pay and display charges and clock price will remain unchanged.
Cllr Heron said, "We have always believed it important to have reasonable and proportionate car parking charges to benefit local businesses and residents. It is therefore appropriate that we are again able to freeze car parking charges for 2017."
Car parking clocks are on sale from the end of November at newforest.gov.uk/parkingclocks
