Discount parking charges

Discount parking charges

One of Carlisle City Council’s car parks will offer up even cheaper parking from tomorrow (Tuesday, 16 February).

A decision has been taken by the council to offer discounted parking charges in Upper Viaduct - one of its prime city centre car parks.

Carlisle City Council spokesperson said:

“Since the recent flooding in December 2015, the pay and display machines have been out of order but are now up and running. This has led to a marked change in the parking behaviour of our customers and the occupancy of Upper Viaduct car park has increased to the point that the car park is almost at full capacity every day. The use of the car park has been steadily declining for a number of years so to encourage customers to continue using the car park we’ve discounted our parking charges.”

The discounted charges are as follows:

Cllr Elsie Martlew, Deputy Leader of Carlisle City Council, said:

“By parking in City Council car parks, drivers can park longer for less. We want to encourage drivers to use our car parks as revenues are ploughed back in to support essential council services. “
