St Ives Residents Parking

Barnoon Car Park - St Ives Cornwall

Cornwall Council recently put forward proposals for increases "consistency" in car parking charges across the county.

It looks like one end result may be huge increases in parking charges for St Ives residents over the next two years.

The council are running a consultation which gives a right to respond, but responses must be submitted by 3rd December. Response forms are available from the St Ives Town Council office at The Guildhall. You can download a printable a copy from my St Ives Website. You can also respond online using  the consultation link above.

An action group has been set up to co-ordinate local concerns. They will be holding a public meeting tomorrow evening (25th November) at The Western Hotel, starting at 6.00 pm, all welcome.

Updates will be posted on:

  2. We were fortunate to have Andrew Wallis (Chairman of the Parking Panel) and Peter Moore (Local Transport Manger) in attendance last evening to hear the the views of St Ives residents. Hopefully they will take our reasoned arguments against charges based on a disconnected notion of 'market value' and consider some method of pricing based on factors which have a direct relationship to local affordability.
