Today I was re-elected as the Chairman of the Parking Panel. Its a difficult job, but is made easier because of the commitment from the Panel Members.
On the Agenda today was the groupings of certain car parks and the charging periods. A lot of work had gone into trying to place each car park in the correct grouping. That’s not an easy task. On the whole there was not too many changes to what was proposed.
As for the charging periods, this was deferred till the next meeting on the 8th July. The reason was because the Panel felt that the charging periods should be decided when we discuss the pricing structures and prices for these groups. They might all be different, or all the same. That is the discussion for the next meeting.
I have always promised that I would try and make parking charges as cheap and fair as possible. I still aim to do this, but this process cannot be done over night.
