SALFORD COUNCIL CAR PARK CHARGES RISE
 

Star date: 17th February 2011 

COUNCIL CAR PARKING SET TO RISE BY UP TO £3.50

Councillors next week will be asked to approve huge increases in charges on Salford City Council car parks which in some instances will rise by £3.50.

The car park outside the Civic Centre in Swinton, which is currently free for the first two hours, will see charges imposed of £1.50 for the first two hours and £3.50 for over two hours. The Council car park in Monton Village, which is also currently free, will see the same charges applied. All other charges will rise by 30%.

Full details here…


What Salford Council is calling "relatively modest" increases in car parking charges will be applied from April this year if councillors give the go-ahead next week.

Car parks at the Civic Centre and Monton Village that were formerly free, will see charges imposed for the first time. The Civic Centre, which was free for the first two hours followed by £1 for every extra hour, will see a new rate of £1.50 for the first two hours followed by £3.50 for over two hours. Monton, formerly totally free for 24 hours, will see the same rates applied.

Worsely Courthouse, also formerly free for the first hour, will see a charge of £1.50 for the first two hours imposed. All other Salford car parking charges will rise by 30%, while annual contract parking on Council car parks will rise by £80 +VAT.

A Council document argues that parking rates haven't risen since 2007 on pay and display parks, and that on-street parking rates haven't risen since 2002…

"The proposed charges for on-street and off-street car parking represent an increase of 30%" it states "but given the low starting point, the real monetary increases are still relatively modest."

It will cost Salford Council £15,000 to implement the changes and the document accepts that "Motorists' reluctance to pay extra parking charges could initially result in a reduction in demand but this should decrease over time as the new charges generally become accepted…"

The inept , cretinous council morons will now engineer the demise of Swinton precinct. Perhaps their plan is to sell it to Tesco for a superstore. Pathetic.
