Parking charges to increase

THE cost of using South Oxfordshire District Council’s car parks will go up from April 1.

THE cost of using South Oxfordshire District Council’s car parks will go up from April 1.

The council has approved an increase of either 10p or 20p following a review. This will be the first rise since 2007.

The car parks affected include King’s Road, Greys Road and Southfields, off Goodall Close, in Henley, Wheel Orchard in Goring and Mill Stream in Benson, which is currently free to use.

A report to councillors said: “An increase in the fees across all tariffs is prudent in providing a modest surplus.

“This is in line with the car park pricing policy by setting the fees at a level so that over a five-year rolling period they at least meet the costs of running the car parks.”



Parking currently costs 80p for up to two hours, or between £1.60 and £3.30 for up to eight hours.

• The fees at the Mill Meadows car park in Henley are likely to be frozen for the next year. Henley Town Council is being recommended by its recreation and amenities committee not to impose an increase from April 1. The fees were put up by about 10 per cent last year.
