Title of scheme

Changes to various car parks around the county

Description

 

Shropshire Council is proposing to make an order to facilitate a number of revisions related to the implementation and provision of its new parking strategy.

It is proposed to allow the proprietor or manager of a hotel, guest house, bed and breakfast, self-catering or holiday let establishments to apply for season tickets for use by their guests in specified Shropshire Council car parks across the county.

It is proposed to introduce a flat rate tariff of £1.50 for parking on Sundays, and bank and public holidays in Raven Meadows Multi-storey car park in Shrewsbury.

It is proposed that Falcons Court Car Park in Much Wenlock shall be a Band 6 rather than a Band 5 car park as previously proposed.

These changes are intended to:

1/ Improve the provision of concessionary parking for those visitors staying in the county

2/ Provide concessionary rates and promote dwell time for parking within the Shrewsbury river loop on Sundays, and bank and public holidays

3/ Encourage more users to park in Falcon’s Court, rather than in St Mary’s Lane car park, Much Wenlock.

Locations

Car parks in Bridgnorth, Church Stretton, Ellesmere, Ludlow, Market Drayton, Much Wenlock, Oswestry, Prees Heath, Shrewsbury, Wem and Whitchurch
