Issue details

Review of on-street parking charges and related policy - phase two

As Highway Authority, the County Council is responsible for managing on-street parking. This includes setting on-street parking charges at appropriate levels to deliver the County Council’s objectives for parking management, as set out in the Integrated Parking Strategy.


The on-street parking charges review for 2019/20 has been carried out in two phases, the first of which was approved by the Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure in July 2019. This second phase outlines options for a further review of some on-street parking charges, all of which will require a separate TRO advertisement. These include:


  • A new 6-month Resident, Non-Resident, Healthcare, Carer, Countywide, Trader and Doctor permit
  • A standard cost for Hotel permits (Worthing only)
  • Changes to the charges in Crawley Library Car Park
  • For Resident and Non-Resident permits, a proposed reduction for low emission vehicles


The options under consideration included adjustments to parking charges to make improvements to the administration of the residents’ parking schemes, correcting any imbalance that exists between the on and off-street charges in some towns, taking account of inflation and helping to facilitate future improvements in service provision.
