New parking charges to come in across Buckinghamshire from Monday 3rd April 2023

| April 2, 2023

New charges for on and off street parking in Council operated car parks across Buckinghamshire will come into force from Monday 3rd April 2023.

The changes are being introduced following a review by the council’s budget scrutiny committee.

The changes will see an increase of 20p per tariff for on street parking and 10p per tariff for off street parking. Where applicable, free parking periods are expected to remain unchanged.

Steven Broadbent, Cabinet Member for Transport at Buckinghamshire Council, said: ‘The increased fees will go into maintaining the upkeep and enhancement of these valuable assets, which benefit the whole community, along with our environmental and transport objectives.

The changes form part of a wider programme of work to improve our car parks, which includes installing new ticketless payment machines to make it easier for people to pay for parking – with customers able to choose cashless payment in addition to the options to pay via the RingGo app or phoneline.

This reflects changes in how people have chosen to pay for their parking in recent years. We’ve seen a decrease in cash payments and significantly more people choosing to pay using contactless cards or the RingGo app or phoneline.

All funds raised from the council’s on and off-street parking facilities are used to support the upkeep of facilities and wider transport initiatives.
