New car parking charges for Northwich

Shares

Public notices have been published this month regarding changes to car parking tariffs at Cheshire West and Chester Council’s car parks in Northwich.

The new charges come into effect today (Tuesday 27th November 2018).

Parking charges and other controls will be introduced, which the council hopes will support short stay parking in central car parks and alleviate blockages caused by long-stay commuter use.

Some car parks will remain free of charge, such as Baron’s Quay with free parking for up to four hours to encourage dedicated retail and leisure use.

Other changes include the relaxation of restrictions on Market car park, so that shoppers can now park there on market days after 10am.

Blue badge holders will be able to park for free for up to four hours and borough residents can register for a special micro-chip blue badge for use in some large ANPR controlled car parks (as is already the case in Chester).

The council said the new charges and controls form part of its action plan to ensure parking in Northwich is fit for purpose and positively contributes to the town’s economy.

The plan, designed to better manage car parking demand across the town, is part of its 15-year parking strategy.

Cllr Karen Shore commented: “These new changes and controls for parking in Northwich will introduce the right offers in the right places to encourage visitors, improve disabled provision, and reduce congestion and air pollution.

“We are supporting residents, businesses and the visitor economy and the changes will ensure that parking in Northwich will be easier and more accessible for everyone.”
