Revised parking charges
10:10am Monday 2nd April 2012 in News
From April 1, changes to charges in Test Valley’s council car parks came into force.
To encourage residents and visitors to spend longer in the town centres, the three-hour tariff has been reduced and the medium-term charge for over three hours has been frozen.
The cost of season tickets has been frozen, with a monthly direct debit option being offered.
Free parking after 4pm has also been maintained.
Changes will be as follows:
Ultra Short Term:
30 and 45minutes - up 5p
1 hour - up 5p
Short/Medium Term, Alternate Medium Term, Special Medium Term: 1 and 2 hours - up 10p
3 hours - down 20p 4
5 hours - no change
Over 4/5 hours - no change
Long Term/Special Long Term
Up to 2/3 hours - up 10p
Up to 5 hours - up 40p
Over 5 hours - up 60p
TVBC says it is four years since the last increase for long- stay and all-day tariffs and parking in Test Valley is generally still lower than in neighbouring districts.
