Parking in Chesham is to become more flexible following a change in charges at Albany Place Car Park in Chesham.
On Monday 31st October 2016 new tariffs were introduced at the car park, which is near the Elgiva Theatre.
Users of the car park now that the option of paying for parking slots as little as 10 minutes, starting at a rate of 10p, for the first hour.
A 20 minute stay costs 20p, a 30 minute stay costs 30p and so on for the first hour. Before the change in tariffs users had to pay for a minimum of one hour.
The charges are now in line with those at Catlings car park in the town centre which is also popular with short stay car users.
Cllr Mike Smith, Chiltern District Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said: ‘The new charges have been introduced in response to public demand – people who use this car park on a short-stay basis, to pop quickly into the theatre to pick up tickets and for brief visits into the town. It’s a common-sense solution which will benefit our residents and local businesses.‘
