Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
This decision is urgent as it reflects the
current crises. The decision is being made to ensure that social
distancing measures are implemented and also to protect staff from
collecting cash and cleaning potentially infected areas.
There is a significant financial implication in not charging in car parks. This is around £260k per month. However, most Councils are either not charging or not enforcing.
Even if we carried on charging, income would be down as shops are shut and people are isolating.
Cease charging on Council car parks and close
Option 1 - As above, Cease charging in public
car parks and close public toilets.
Option 2 - Not enforcing. The difficulty with this is that if people think that they still have to pay, they will do so and we will then have the issue of cash collection.
Option 3 -none
