Saffron Walden Town Council calls for pay-on-exit parking in town
PAY on exit parking is now the preferred option of Saffron Walden Town Council.
Members voted to recommend to Uttlesford District Council (UDC), responsible for car parks in the town, that the policy replace that of the current pay and display method.
The motion was proposed by Cllr Nick Osborne at a full council meeting last Thursday (September 12), who said it would benefit businesses and residents.
He told members introducing pay on exit parking as part of the refurbishment of Waitrose’s Fairycroft Road car park, due for completion next June, would be a start.
Although Cllr Osborne accepted it would be too expensive to introduce it at Swan Meadow, he said: “We should pass on to UDC that it is our view car parks in the town be moved to pay-on-exit instead of pay and display.”
