Early in this post jimbow wrote about the 99 spaces at Crown bringing in £52k per year based on 80 filled but if the whole 99 who get freebies paid it would fetch in over £64k Monday to Friday just from the special essential staff members.
Does anyone know how many “TOP MANAGERS” get free Guildhall parking because if 50 of them went and paid at the People’s Market that would be an extra £32.5k and then there would be a lot of money made from using the Guildhall as short stay because it is the most convenient one for shops and the Monday market (as a Councillor!)
So maybe we save the Council over £100k a year? Just my back of a fag pack maths. And that is before anyone charges the Councillors.
The Council would rather charge Blue Badge holders and generate £25k of income,rather than pay themselves for parking and generate as you say £100k.
So what happened to Difficult Decisions?
7) Staff and Member Car Parking
The Council currently provides free parking to some of its staff and to Elected Members in town centre car parks. It is proposed to remove this entitlement to encourage more sustainable modes of travel to work (e.g. public transport) and to generate additional income, as some may still choose to pay for parking in Council owned car parks.
It is estimated that this could generate additional income of approximately £49,000 in 2018/19.
—— Plans are also afoot to introduce charging for elected members and council staff, though that would be considered an internal matter and therefore no wider consultation is needed to implement them ——–
