The cost of parking is going to be cut in some Cornish towns.

Bude, Launceston, Liskeard, Penzance and St Ives are taking part in a trial.

It is to see if it will boost trade over the winter months.

“Car parks are a vital part of the trading infrastructure of our towns,” said Councillor Bert Biscoe, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for Transport and Waste. “Christmas and New Year are very important festivals and also peak trading times – therefore the Council’s parking service is doing this experiment to see if we can help boost events and trade..”  

“Councillors and the local community have also suggested trials that support local workers and boost trade throughout quiet times,” added Parking Policy Group Leader Kate Dixon. “We also have a number of other suggestions in the pipeline that we are currently analysing with the view to implementation in the forthcoming months.”
 
At the end of the various trials the Council will assess the impact of each one to determine if they would be financially viable to continue.

• Bude – Summerleaze; £1 per day between Monday 16 December for about 3 months
• Launceston – Castle Street, Cattle Market, Pannier Market, Walkhouse; £1 on Saturdays leading up to Christmas – 30 November, 7, 14 and 21 December
• Liskeard – Rapsons; £1 per day between Monday 16 December for about three months
• Penzance – St Erbyns; £1.90 per day between Friday 6 December for about three months
• St Ives - £2 per day in all long stay car parks, £2 for three hours in short stay car parks between Monday 16 December for about three months
