Plans have been revealed by North West Leicestershire Conservatives to increase parking charges around the district.
Whilst our town centres are still suffering from the blight of empty shop fronts and hard working local families from a lack of disposable income it's expected that charges for parking will increase on 1 April 2014.
If proposals tabled for approval are accepted parking for 1 hour will increase from 50p to 60p, for 2 hours from 80p to £1.00 and All Day from £2.00 to £2.20. Charges for 3 hours will remain unchanged.
It is expected that increasing parking charges will bring in around £100,000 income to the council.
What do you think?
Are our car parks good value?
Are you less likely to use our town centres?
Your comments would be very much appreciated.
