New tariff to maintain and improve the quality of car parks ...

30th March, 2024.

A new car parking tariff will be introduced from mid April, as part of North Yorkshire’s commitment to maintain and improve its facilities.

North Yorkshire Council’s decision to implement a new tariff was made after careful consideration of several factors impacting the service.

The cost of parking facilities, including infrastructure, repairs, lighting, and security has risen, and ensuring a safe and well-maintained environment is essential for the convenience and satisfaction of customers.

The car parking tariff has not increased in some areas for more than a decade, with the majority unchanged for at least three years.

Therefore, the council will introduce an increase broadly aligned with inflation.

From April, there will be a 20 per cent increase across the car parking tariff, which reflects an annual increment of approximately 6.7 per cent since the last increase.
