In addition, the District Council is also writing to the 2,000 Concessionary (Over 65s) permit holders as part of the consultation.
Cllr Ian Shenton, Operations Portfolio Holder says: "Our car park charges haven't been reviewed for several years and as a Council we are considering a number of options due to the rising costs of operating and maintaining car parks.

Once the consultation results have been collated and analysed a further report will be presented to The Cabinet before final recommendations are agreed.
