From 1st September, Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) is increasing Sunday and public holiday charges across all its car parks from £1 to £1.50. It is scrapping the £1 evening charge at all its car parks and instead, the normal hourly rates will apply until 9pm. This will affect those of us using car parks to attend Sunday services or evening meetings and events.
The AVDC website says, "The income from car parking charges contributes to a range of car parking activities, which include the administration of the service, off street enforcement as well as the routine repairs and maintenance of the car parks. It allows the council to invest in new technology, such as the Pay by Phone facility and hand held appliances for the enforcement officers, and also provides funds for more major items of repairs that are sometimes necessary as well as providing funds for future car parking provision."
