Following requests from local business group Fleet Future and Fleet Town Council, Hart District Council is consulting on parking charges which aim to improve customer dwell time to help promote Fleet as a vibrant centre for customers to come and shop. The consultation is open from Friday 18 December until 15 January 2016. To have your say, visit www.hart.gov.uk/consultations and complete the online form.
The parking charges have been designed to be as customer friendly as possible with 2hrs for £1.00 and 4hrs for £2.00. The charges also retain the popular 30 minutes for 20p and will include this at any time of the day or night. It will also now be possible for customers to purchase a ticket for the whole day when they arrive.
The new charges, if agreed, will apply to all council-owned car parks in Fleet, which include Church Road, Victoria Road, Branksomewood Road, Gurkha Square, Civic Offices and Harlington Way.
Following the consultation period the new charges may be implemented on 2 February 2016.
