Parking charges coming into force

Pay and display charges are being introduced at three free car parks in Brighouse, Bank Street, Mill Lane and Church Lane in autumn this year.

Councillor Barry Collins, spokesman for economy and environment said: “We are introducing the charges to help make our car parks self-financing. The money raised through parking charges will be used to pay for the administration of our car parks and to ensure that they continue to be safe and kept in good repair.”

The car parks will have a tariff of 40p per hour from Monday to Saturday between 8am and 6pm. Parking on Sunday will be free. People can object to the changes, in writing, within 21 days of the order being advertised in the car parks to: Planning and Highways, Calderdale Council, Northgate House, Northgate, HX1 1UN.
