Vale Parking Policy Consultation: Have your say

on Wed, 11/11/2020 - 3:51pm

Vale of White Horse District Council want to know what you think of the proposed changes to car park fees and charges.

Over the summer the council’s Cabinet agreed to a number of options which will form part of the new parking order and determine how it operates its car parks across the district. We are required to review all car park fees and charges every year to make sure the cost of running the car parks are met by the residents that use them. You can view the options that were considered at Cabinet in the Cabinet report from August (click).

We want to provide additional parking for electric vehicles and powers to issue fines for parking non-electric vehicles in electric charging bays, or for leaving an electric vehicle in the bay when it’s not charging. We would also like to phase the removal of the discount on resident permits over a four-year period from 2020 to 2024 (new resident permits are no longer available to purchase, although space permitting, full price permits may be purchased).

We are also proposing to remove the parking for large vehicles in the Rye Farm car park in Abingdon-on-Thames and create more spaces for smaller vehicles.  We also want to formalise parking bays in Hales Meadow car park in Abingdon-on-Thames for coaches and campervans.

The survey will run from Thursday 29 October until midnight on Thursday 19 November 2020.

Your comments will help councillors make a final decision and introduce the new arrangements in 2021.
