Council Proposes Changes to Car Parks

Charges in Cornwall Council-run car parks, prohibiting overnight camping in motorhomes in more car parks and changes to reserved permits are being considered under a range of proposals by the Council. The Council today published a statutory notice inviting comments on proposals to: • increase car park charges by 3.1% in line with the rate of inflation • change Reserved Permits to reflect feedback, with prices to be tiered according to the number of vehicles a permit may be used in • respond to local concerns and ban overnight camper vans in more Cornwall Council car parks
