Proposed changes to car parking charges

We are proposing a wide range of changes to car parking across the district.

Our proposals include: 

  • Overnight, Sunday and Bank Holiday charging at the Council's current pay-and-display car parks and on-street parking;
  • Limiting free parking to three hours at Thornes Park, Minsthorpe Leisure Centre, Normanton Leisure Centre and Library, and Pontefract Pool;
  • Introducing charging for parking at Anglers Country Park at the same rate as Pugneys.

We believe that our proposals will free up more parking spaces for genuine site users and help us take enforcement action to tackle any issues.

Our proposals would affect a wide range of people and groups across the district, including residents, businesses and community / voluntary organisations, so we are keen to hear from as many people as possible.
