Commuters and people working in St Albans will save £4 on the cost of all-day parking at certain car parks in the city centre following tariff changes.

This announcement comes after St Albans District Council introduced a new parking strategy designed to make the most of available capacity at its car parks.

Previously, drivers parking for more than five hours a day in St Albans would have had to pay £9 at the following NCP-managed car parks:

•Bricket Road North
•Keyfield Terrace
•Gombards
•Townsend Avenue

Now, they will only have to pay £5 at these car parks to park for more than five hours a day. At NCP managed, council-owned car parks elsewhere in the city it will cost £10 if parking for more than six hours a day.

New signs will also be introduced to help commuters and workers and shoppers, find car parks. A pay by phone service will also be installed at all council-owned car parks.

Once again a complete mess over parking charge increases by the council. Even though according to the council our car parks are 50% empty they have put up charges & then within a month put them down again! But, If you look at the NCP website on Keyfield terrace the above information is not correct..

The cost for over 5 hour parking is £9.00? A key time for Business & employees in the city. If we compare this to another commuter town, Berkhamstead, for example. The cost for 10 hours is a very reasonable £3.50. SADC has once again shown how anti it is to business investing in this city!
