Parking charges not the problem in Yeovil

Parking charges not the problem in Yeovil

Jul 24, 2019

Parking charges are not to blame for a drop in visitor numbers to Yeovil town centre, according to South Somerset District Council.

In its annual budget report, the Council says income from parking machines fell by £149,000 last year. They dismiss suggestions that parking charges have been the cause of a loss of footfall in Yeovil.

SSDC says it would need an extra 2-million pounds every year to provide free parking across the district – which would have to be raised by council tax increases and service cuts.
