PUBLIC parking in the evenings and at weekends is set to cost more.

PUBLIC parking in the evenings and at weekends is set to cost more.

Wokingham Borough Council is consulting on plans to impose a £1 fee at all its car parks, including School Lane, Wargrave, on Sundays, bank holidays and Monday to Saturday from 6pm to 8am. These are currently free to use. If approved, the charge would come into effect on April 3.

Councillor John Kaiser, executive member for highways, said: “We understand people are going to get upset about this but compared with other nearby councils we’ve hung on as long as possible before introducing overnight charges. 

“We simply cannot afford to run free car parks in this current climate. If they are to survive our car parks must become more self-sufficient.”
