Chichester - Statement Of Reasons Income generated by car parking charges
What is happening?
STATEMENT OF REASONS
Income generated by car parking charges is regularly monitored. Parking charges are both a means of managing parking spaces and are an important income sources to the authority. Income raised is invested in maintaining and improving the car parks service, in retaining other Council services and in reducing Council Tax. The proposed charges have been considered by the Chichester District Parking Forum and reflect different circumstances and different methods of operation and various towns within the district. The District Council’s Cabinet at its meeting on 7 November 2023 approved the recommendations for public consultation.
The proposals seek a balance between costs to residents, the needs of the local commerce and the importance of remaining competitive with other centres in the area. The charges are considered to be modest and in line with other similar areas and neighbouring authorities.
