BANES are revising Car Park charges ahead of Public Consultation later this year

Proposed changes to car parking charges in Bath & North East Somerset,
including the wider roll out of emission-based charges, are going before
councillors ahead of wider public consultation later this year.

Under the proposed changes all parking charges would see a modest
increase over the next two years, as well as more locations switching to
a variable charging structure linked to a vehicle’s emissions, meaning
more polluting vehicles will pay more.

Emission-based parking charges are proposed to be implemented at the
following locations:

* Bath (all on-street pay and display locations)
* Keynsham (all council-owned car parks)
* Midsomer Norton (South View Road and Excelsior Terrace car parks)
* Radstock (Church Road and Waterloo Road car parks)
* Saltford (The Shallows car park)

Councillors on the Climate Emergency and Sustainability Policy
Development & Scrutiny Panel on 21 March will be updated on
proposals to review parking charges and extend emission-based parking
charges to all paid for parking locations, as agreed by Council on 20
February as part of the 2024-25 budget setting.
