Wiltshire Council Car Parking Review

Wiltshire County Council are running a Car Parking Review consultation.

The story is on the front page of their website on the news portal http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/news/articles/parking-charges-consultation-now-live

A link to the consultation is displayed prominently on the main parking landing page: http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/parking-home


Despite rising operational costs and increasing service demands, the council has not applied any inflationary increases to car parking charges since 2011 and this has resulted in service standards being reduced to levels that are now effecting the management of parking arrangements.

There is also a requirement to invest in new technologies to maximise the benefit of the council’s limited resources by automating parking usage, using technology to meet the demand of parking users for quick and easy payments and to bring benefits to the local communities for example greater enforcement of parking orders outside of schools.

A number of options to increase the funding of the Parking Service have been proposed. Each option has been costed so that choices can be made in light of the effects any changes may have on the public, businesses and visitors as well as how that option contributes to the overall council budget shortfall.

The preferred method to receive comments is through completion of the on-line electronic questionnaire available through the Wiltshire Council Consultation Portal webpage.

Please note that there is no requirement to register or log-in to the portal to respond through the on-line questionnaire.

Paper copies of the questionnaire are also available on request by contacting the council on the below number.
