Wiltshire Council has advised that new parking arrangements will come into force on the 19th November 2018.
Parking Charges on Sundays have been suspended until further notice, as advised by Wiltshire Council Parking Services. However, charges still apply for Bank/ Public Holiday parking, so please check the pay and display notices in the Car Parks in BoroughFields and Wood Street.
Season Ticket charges will also rise. However, following feedback from the Traffic Regulation Order consultation this will be phased over two years, to mitigate a "one off" increase. New charges will not be made until the expiry date on season tickets after November. Hence customers purchasing annual season tickets in October 2018 will not see an increase until October 2019. With that increase being the lower phased charge for a first year season ticket.
Residential Permits are changing, but not at the 2017 consulted charges. It has been decided to reduce the proposed charges to the below:
- £50 for the first permit and £70 for the second permit (at the same address) in limited waiting zones; and
- £80 for the first permit and £100 for the second permit (at the same address) in residents' only zones
