The council is facing a £4.2 million budget gap by 2024/25. Like many other councils, the budget has been put under further pressure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic with falling income and extra costs to provide support during this unprecedented time.
Introducing parking charges at Eastrop car parks, in line with other town centre car parks, will strike a fair balance for those visiting the park and those who park at the site and visit the town centre. This would also raise additional income to support the ongoing maintenance and improvement of the park.
