The net surplus we receive from supplying car parking services helps to fund car park improvement projects. Any additional surplus goes to support the council’s general expenditure.
All the income that the district council receives from parking is from ‘off-street’ parking, which is car parks and not on-street parking on public highways and roads. This means that it is exempt from the legislative requirement to ‘ring fence’ any surplus to transport-related expenditure.
