Parking charges in full for St. Ives
We are really disappointed that in spite of consulting with communities back in March, St. Ives will have increased short stay parking tariffs in Cornwall Council Car Parks from 31/05/23.
Evening parking charges in the summer however between 6pm and Midnight will decrease to £2.00 instead of £3.40 and this will be FREE in the winter after 4pm which is excellent news for our night time economy.
The new short stay tariffs for Cornwall Council Car Parks have increased to:
– Up to 30 minutes (where applicable) £1.30
– Up to 1 hour – £2.20
– 1 to 2 hours – £4.40
– 2 to 3 hours – £5.50.
We are very disappointed with these changes and the South West BIDs network have contacted Cornwall Council several times as we still believe the new parking charges will have a very negative impact on the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors.
The multi-use tickets, available via Just Park which are not well publicised by Cornwall Council are now £2.50 for each 24 hour session which although increased are much more cost effective than paying for individual sessions if you use the car parks regularly.
