From Monday 25 February 2019, changes to existing parking charges will be introduced on a number of streets and in car parks across Calderdale.
Following approval by Cabinet in November 2018, parking tariffs are now being amended in a mix of on-street and off-street existing pay and display locations.
The cost of parking in many places will stay the same, and where increases are planned, charges will continue to remain favourable when compared to other towns and cities in West Yorkshire.
Cllr Susan Press, Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhood Services, said:
“We review our parking charges every two years to keep prices up-to-date and ensure availability and turnover of spaces to help boost the local economy.
“We’ve looked at tariffs right across Calderdale and carefully considered each town’s circumstances and individual requirements. In some places charges have reduced, for example we’ve introduced a flat £1 per day charge on Saturdays in North Bridge car park in Halifax to encourage more people to come to the town to enjoy shopping or leisure activities.”
Any money that the Council raises from parking charges is used to support investment in local highways initiatives. Any resulting income would contribute to important schemes such as maintenance work and the LED street lighting rollout across Calderdale.
Notices are in place in affected car parks and on-street parking places.
