On 27 January 2015 Preston City Council has made the decision to freeze pay and display charges on their city centre car parks.
The decision was made on Monday by Councillor Robert Boswell for pay and display charges to be frozen for the forthcoming year at Avenham, Market Hall, Hill Street and Trinity Square car parks.


Cabinet member for community and environment, Councillor Robert Boswell, said: “We have made the decision to freeze pay and display charges at four of our car parks to make it easier for shoppers, visitors, commuters and businesses to access the city centre. The freeze has been put on for the forthcoming year. “We have made a lot of improvements to the city centre and there will hopefully be more to come, so now we want people to easily access parking close to the city centre and enjoy the ongoing regeneration.”

Addresses for the car parks affected:

  • Avenham car park, Skye Street, Preston, PR1 3XA
  • Market Hall car park, Tenterfield Street, Preston, PR1 2JD
  • Hill Street car park, Hill Street, Preston, PR1 2BB
  • Trinity Square car park, Market Street West, Preston, PR1 2EU
