Just come across this on council website.

Biggest change is that they are going to charge for on street parking until 20:30!!! are they trying to drive people to Meadowhall or what?:loopy:

 

They charge in off-street car parks till 20.30 and the central ones seem quite busy in the evenings, so charging doesn't seem to put people off. How many of the city centre shops are open late? I'd guess most people are coming into the city centre at that time for entertainment, not shopping.

This is difficult

 

Whilst I do not support the councils view on residents parking (see my sig) it is good that they are trying to get us onto the buses.

 

However as long as a car park costs as little as it does relative to a bus fare for 2 or more people there is no way you will get more people onto public transport when the buses cost a packet and are less convenient

 

On the other hand jacking up the car park prices, which is what is needed, will as has been said coerce more over to Meadowhall and destroy our city centre even more.

 

Make Meadowhall pay and display

Thats the answer

Except they never will of course

So you want to make people abandon the city centre AND Meadowhall? :loopy: Nutter!.

Why should Meadowhall charge people to park on it's land if it doesn't want to.

The trouble is cost of busses, it's £1.50 to get half way up Burngreave road and that's before the new price increases. People won't bother.

Yep, me too! A superb scheme! I just wish there were more places to park all day - the scheme only lets you park for as long as the maximum time is on the site.

I was thinking about LPG - no concessions in residents parking schemes?

DaBouncer told me about this a while ago but it's only applicable in City Centre area (ie, inside the ring road)

No unfortunately, i'd have loved off/on street parking for free instead of paying UoS (who i blummin work for i might add) to park in their car parks. :mad:

Another genious idea from the idiots sat in the council chamber.

 

Anyone else think they are trying to drive people away from the city forever!!!

The government can force them to. There was talk of this a few months ago (all out of town shopping centres).
