Parking Charges In Winslow Proposed

It's official the council want to charge drivers to park in Winslow's Greyhound Lane car park

AVDC has started a formal consultation on the idea.

A spokesperson for Aylesbury Vale District Council told Mix96 "the council has published a statutory notice announcing its intention to create new pay and display parking in the town's Greyhound Lane car park."

"Drivers will still be able to park for free for the first hour but there will be a 30p charge for a two-hour stay, 50p for three hours, £1 for four hours, £1.50 for five hours and £2.50 for up to 24 hours."

"The proposed charges will apply between 8.30am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday, allowing visitors to park for free in the evenings, on Sundays and on public holidays."

Councillor Kevin McPartland, Cabinet Member for Civic Amenities, said "like any large scale business in this uncertain economic climate, we have to exercise controls on our operational costs, whilst at the same time generating revenue in a way which is fair and equitable to the local tax payer. When it comes to car parking charges, it is not fair to expect motorists in some areas to have to pay for parking whilst allowing users in other areas to have free access to these facilities. The proposed new prices compare very well with other destinations and the tariff includes a free hour to help encourage trade and visits to the town."

"The proposed changes to the Off-Street Parking Order have to go through a period of statutory consultation and public advertisement and any objections will have to be reported back to the council for consideration. The normal consultation period has been extended to take into account the Christmas and New Year holidays."

"The order as proposed may be examined at the council's High Street offices in Aylesbury between 9am and 4pm. It is proposed that the order will come into force on 31 January 2011, subject to the outcome of the consultation."

"All objections and other representations relating to this order must be made in writing, specifying the grounds upon which they are made, before the close of business on 17 January 2011, to the Parking Services Manager, AVDC, 66 High Street, Aylesbury HP20 1SD."
