July signals new parking charges

Tuesday 26 June 2018

Parking Sign

The payment rise was agreed as part of the Council’s budget setting process following public consultation.

Environment and regeneration convener Councillor Michael McCormick said: “This is the first time we have increased the charges to park all day in our long-stay car parks in nearly four years.

“Unfortunately the reality of public finances and the pressure on councils to make savings has left us with little choice.”

Decriminalised parking enforcement came into force in Inverclyde in October 2014 to address inconsiderate and illegal parking and to provide parking opportunities for all road users.

Off-street parking is divided into medium stay – up to 3 hours – and long stay for which a day ticket will cost £2 from July. These tickets can be used in any council car park on the day of issue. The maximum anyone will pay for parking in Inverclyde council operated parking spaces for the day will be £2.
