Cost of parking on Hull street could triple

20/11/2014
Residents of a street in Hull will be able to voice their opinions on a planned increase in the price of parking permits from £7.50 to £20.

The parking control zone permits applicable to those living within the KC Stadium zones are used by 28,000 households.

Hull city Council say the rise doesn’t even cover the costs of running the scheme, which comes to £33, but acknowledge that raising prices to this level would be unacceptable.

However, they did highlight that it would also be unfair to expect other residents not benefiting from the permits to cover the costs via tax.

Councillor Martin Mancey, responsible for parking, explained: “Officers recommended that the cost of permits should be increased to £33 to fully cover operating costs, but in my view an overnight increase of this magnitude is unacceptable.

"On the other hand, it is unreasonable for other, often less well-off, residents who do not require permits to fully subsidise the costs for those that do.”

The proposed price increase will not affect those who received free permits when the ground was first built, the Hull Daily Mail claims.

The public consultation will begin in January, and if residents disagree with the parking enforcement changes then the permits could be removed entirely.
