Aylesbury to face big rise in car parking charges

02/07/2015
The district council has confirmed big rises in Aylesbury's car parking charges as of 1 September, reports The Bucks Herald.

Charges will increase by up to 50 per cent at the Exchange Street car park, whilst evening tariffs are also being removed, after the authority agreed to a new concoction of fees in February.

The new changes mean a half an hour stay at Exchange Street will increase by 30 pence, from 50 to 80 pence, and up to an hour will increase from £1 to £1.50; three hours £2 to £2.50; four hours £3.50 to £4 while longer stay charges have not changed.

At the Aqua Vale car park, a two-hour stay will cost £2 rather than £1, while four hours rises to £6 from £3 and 24 hours is up £10 from £6.

Hourly car park fees elsewhere have remained the same along with annual permit costs aside from Walton Street.

The council is also raising Sunday and public holiday charges across all its car parks by 50 pence - £1 to £1.50, and getting rid of the £1 evening charge, meaning day rates in Aylesbury will be valid until 9pm and free thereafter until 8am the following morning.

Councillor Angela Macpherson, cabinet member for leisure, communities and civic amenities, said: “We have worked extremely hard to produce a new price structure that balances a range of differing needs and supports the changing requirements of a growing town centre.

“Our decision to extend the daytime charges into the evening is intended to make the charging structure more straightforward for our customers."
