Notices are going up this week, to inform road users of changes to parking charges on street and in car parks across Calderdale.
It has been five years since the Council reviewed its on-street parking and car park charges, so they do not all reflect current demand.
From Monday 27 March, tariff amendments will be introduced in existing pay and display areas across the borough. In some areas, like Halifax town centre, this will mean an increase, while in others, like Elland, a reduced rate has been introduced to help increase footfall.
Notices with details of the changes will be on site in the affected streets/car parks. Charges will remain favourable when compared to other towns and cities in West Yorkshire.
Full details of where and what the changes are, can be viewed by searching for Traffic Regulation Orders at www.calderdale.gov.uk. Details are under the title ‘Review of Parking Charges across Calderdale – Phase 2 – Parking Charge Changes’.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Cllr Barry Collins, said:
“Parking charges in Calderdale are low when compared to other nearby towns and cities. We’ve looked carefully at tariffs right across Calderdale and are working on a programme to ensure that they now reflect the individual requirements of each town, with charges reducing in some areas and increasing in others.”
