Town Centre Off Street Day Rate Car Park Charges

Decision Maker: Bracknell Town Centre Regeneration Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To present options in respect of the off street council-run car parks in the town centre which are reviewed in September of each year.

Decision:

That the charging tariffs for The Avenue, High Street, Braccan Walk

and Weather Way car parks from 1st October 2020 as detailed in Table 1b

Option 2A set out in the report are approved.

Reasons for the decision:

That a decision is taken on which of the following charging options is adopted for The

Avenue, High Street, Braccan Walk and Weather Way car parks from 1st October

2020.

Alternative options considered:

The Council could maintain the current charges for The Avenue, High Street,

Braccan Walk and Weather Way car parks. This option is not recommended in the

current budget circumstances as increasing current rates could generate additional

income of at least £50,000 if the current estimates for car park usage are realised.

Additionally, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the service is forecast to under

recover on income against target by around £2,000,000 according to the current

worst-case scenario estimate. The increases proposed would help bridge some of

this gap.
