How much does it cost to park in Waverley?

How much does it cost to park in Waverley?

Published by Grace Mcgachy at 6:00am 22nd February 2020.

If you use car parks around Waverley, how much you pay could be changing. 

The Borough Council is updating parking tariffs.  

The changes, which include a freeze on the cost of all one hour stays - and some two hour stays in Farnham and Cranleigh, will be carried out using a 'tailored approach for each car park'.

Some car parks will see an increase in tariffs, while others will remain the same or become cheaper.

Long-stay prices are to be slightly increased in busy town-centre car parks in to make sure there are enough spaces for shoppers,

The changes to tariffs are also designed to encourage commuters and town centre workers to park outside of heavily used central car parks, by offering cheaper long-stay parking where there is greater capacity.

It is also hoped cheaper pricing in car parks on the edges of towns will encourage people to take a short walk into the town centres, helping to reduce the amount of traffic and air pollution.

In Farnham:

  • Tariffs for Riverside 2 and 3 car parks have been reduced from £4.20 to £3.50 and £3 respectively for 10 ½ hrs.

In Cranleigh: 

  • Cranleigh’s Village Way and Stocklund Square car parks will see a price reduction from £8.40 to a maximum tariff of £4 for 24 hours.  

Cllr Nick Palmer, Portfolio Holder for Operational and Enforcement Services, including parking, said: there have not been increases to parking charges for several years:

“We believe this is a balanced approach to improve the availability of parking in areas of high demand, whilst allowing those who need to stay longer to take advantage of reduced charges in less popular car parks and we are not proposing a blanket increase.

“We are making significant investment in our car parks with some major refurbishments in the coming year.

"This is only a first step in the full review of our car parking service and we will be exploring further opportunities to modify our parking strategy to support residents and businesses and will bring forward further proposals in the near future.”

The changes to parking tariffs will take effect from 1 April 2020.
