Move To Freeze Parking Charges In West Dorset
9:13am 5th December 2012
Parking charges in car parks run by West Dorset District Council could be frozen for another year.
A report which will go to the council on the 11th December has recommended that rates stay the same.
But it also recommends withdrawing the 3 to 8 day permit scheme.
The report recommends consulting with town councils, chambers of commerce and Dorchester BID.
West Dorset District Council Parking Manager Chris Graves said:
"The district council has a good track record in recent years of supporting West Dorset town centres by freezing already low parking charges to encourage greater use of short stay spaces.
"The report going to the council's Executive Committee is recommending that we consult with town councils and local business about the freeze and get their views about the 3 -8 day permit."
If the move to consult is approved by councillors, a further report with recommendations about parking charges will go to the Executive Committee next year.
The Executive Committee agenda, including the parking report, can be found HERE.
The committee is open to the public and starts at 2.15pm in the Council Chamber at West Dorset District Council offices, 58 - 60 High West Street, Dorchester.
