Will Wirral Council start charging up to £25 a year for parking permits in resident parking scheme areas?
Wirral Council’s Cabinet will be asked next Monday morning to approve recommendations that include consulting residents on an annual charge for parking permits for those that live in the following resident parking scheme areas:
- Clifton Park, Birkenhead
- Tranmere Rovers
- Prenton (Woodchurch Road)
- Woodchurch (Arrowe Park)
- Silverburn Avenue (Moreton)
- Barnston Lane, Moreton
- Karslake Road, Poulton
Wirral Council already charge a £10 annual charge to residents in resident parking scheme areas that have been created since 2007.
An estimated 14,000 permits have been issued to residents in the eight areas above. If a charge is brought in after consultation, it is expected to be around £20 to £25 a year. If a charge is introduced in the areas that are now free, it is expected that the permit charge in the areas now charged £10 a year will also rise to the same level.
This decision was deferred from the Cabinet meeting held on the 4th September 2017. The councillor who is Cabinet Member for this area (Highways and Transport) is Cllr Stuart Whittingham, who can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cabinet will meet in public next Monday morning (6th November 2017) starting at 10.00 am in Committee Room 1 at Wallasey Town Hall, Seacombe, CH44 8ED.
