The charging structure for the three car parks will be consistent with other county council parking provision in the city centre. The fees will be competitive compared to other car parks in the city centre.
The decision was made earlier this year to introduce these fees due to the council experiencing increased costs and service demand pressures.
New signs and payment machines have been installed at the three car parks in preparation for the introduction of the charges.
The RingGo App and RingGo Phone Service options will be available for cashless payments. Visit www.ringgo.co.uk for more information.
