Minute No. 68/18 – Revised Parking Charges: 2019-2021

 

 

G.P. Dearlove, seconded by A. Kelly moved the following amendment:

 

‘Further to the car parking review which was approved at the Cabinet meeting on 14 November 2018 the following aspect in respect of the proposed parking charges be amended:

 

Firstly, yearly permits to the Station car parks, I am recommending that annual permits continue and still receive the 30% discount which, at present, the yearly permit in this current year is £1,417 with no increase for 2019, proposed increase in year 2, 2020 to £1,505 and year 3, 2021 and increase to £1,558;

 

Secondly, with regard to main car parks annual permits, I recommend the discount or 45% continues which, at present, for 2018 the yearly permit is £1,090, with an increase to £1,174 in 2019 and an increase to £1,258 for the year 2020 and 2021;

 

With regard to the free car parking periods on Saturdays in Walton-on-Thames, that is Ashley Park, Drewitts Court and Manor Road, I recommend that the free periods continue up to the end of June 2019;

 

Finally, the local village car parks, free period on Saturdays that is Ashley Road Thames Ditton, Newbury Lane, South Bank and Walton Road, also continue with the current concessions until the end of June 2019;

 

It is my further suggestion that the matter of free car parking periods on Saturdays in Walton-on-Thames and local village car parks, be sent to Overview and Scrutiny to look into these two items, keeping in mind that our residents should obtain the correct and fair benefits, by placing this item to Overview and Scrutiny, this will give the Committee ample time to review and make recommendations to the Cabinet, prior to end of June 2019; and

 

The Portfolio Holder agrees with the Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee any wider terms of reference.’

 

During consideration of the recommendations from the Cabinet and the proposed above amendment, the Leader of the Council advised Members that an e-Petition from a resident of Walton-on-Thames had been received, in respect of many of the matters covered by the amendment.

 

Mrs. C. Elmer requested a recorded vote, whereupon there voted:

‘The recommendations in respect of Station Car Parks, Local Car Parks and Main Car Parks, which include increases in charges that would raise the annual cost of parking by over 20% for many people, increases amounting to almost £300 at Station Car Parks, are considered excessive and unnecessary.  It is recommended therefore that the proposals set out in Appendix B of the report are withdrawn and that the Portfolio Holder and relevant Officers consult with Members with a view to producing a revised range of proposals in which increases are generally more in line with current levels of inflation.’
