UK drivers face a 230% increase in parking fees as councils expect to collect £1 billion

March 21, 2019

You could be left out of pocket as local councils prepare to collect a record £1 billion in parking fees over the next year.

Analysis suggests UK drivers may have to endure increases of up to 230% from April, with many councils raising costs for town centre car parks and scrapping free parking areas.

Some areas may put an end to free or reduced Sunday parking prices, as councils look to capitalise on weekend shopping.

The analysis, by the RAC Foundation, found some councils are planning significant price hikes due to budget cuts from Central Government, and the need to tackle congestion and pollution.
