Decision over pay-and display changes 'imminent'

First published in News by , Reporter

A DECISION over a total overhaul of the district’s pay-and-display car parks is imminent, according to the council.

Wycombe District Council reports show that a trial of the Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system in High Wycombe has led to an increase in car park usage.

And now the scheme looks set to be rolled out in most WDC-run car parks in the summer, including those in Marlow and Princes Risborough.

The system works by reading number plates as they enter and exit car-parks and automatically calculates how long vehicles have stayed.

Drivers can make payment by cash, credit card, via the internet or on their mobile phones, with the council hopeful parking tickets will become a thing of the past.

A council spokesman this week said a decision over the roll-out was “imminent”.

Though dates are not yet confirmed, June looks likely for the changes, with tariffs to remain the same once the system has been installed.

So what happens to the Blue Badge Scheme ? Please don't make me guess I think I probably know , our Kind And Considerate Council will make them pay for parking unless, they are over 80 years old and have both of their parents with them ! If it is not that then it will be another cunning Council Scheme .

Every thing is a "cunning council scheme"!!! I just wish they put as much effort into actually providing the services they should as they do with coming up with ways of wringing more and more money out of us!!! The last few years have drained me of any respect I used to have for this country, it's all take, take, take and you get less and less back constantly.
