Wyre Forest Conservatives oppose the District Council’s proposed increased Parking Charges

Wyre Forest District Council wants to abolish the One Hour Free Parking in the specified car parks (which was introduced by the Conservatives) in April 2020 and charge £1 for that one hour. Charging hours will be extended from 18:30 to 21:00.  Higher seasonal charges in Bewdley and Stourport from April to October will be imposed which increases the three Hour charge from £3 to £4 and the Up To 24 hour charge from £5 to £6. The District Council’s Cabinet expects extended charging hours to stimulate demand for Season Tickets in Bewdley. *Specified car parks include St Mary’s Church, Comberton Place, Bromsgrove Street, Vale Road and Gardner’s Meadow. Twelve month Season Ticket charges will be reduced from £706 to £400 (Senior Citizens £175), six months to £250, and one month to £45.

Wyre Forest Conservative’s are collating a petition against these revised parking charges, please see your local ward “Matters” to add you name against this proposal by the Progressive Alliance.
