·         To help ensure an appropriate turnover of parking spaces to help support the local economy and in particular, those seeking access to local goods and services;


·         To help balance the cost and convenience of parking against other more sustainable transport options, thereby encouraging walking, cycling and the use of public transport, particularly for shorter journeys.

The options considered are set out in the recommendations received from out parking consultant, which supported the report and recommendations approved by Cabinet in June 2017.
