Selby District Council have just published the draft Car Park Strategy 2017-2020 – this will affect all Sherburn residents and anyone coming into and out of the village.
From 2 September until 28 November, they are seeking comments about the principles of the proposed new car park strategy, which considers the overall charging policy and the look and feel of car parks.
The strategy sets out the Council’s vision for its car parks for the next three years. At this stage the strategy focuses on the principles of how to improve the customer experience at car parks and increase throughput to help people shopping, working in or visiting the area.
Whilst it does not set out any explicit charges for individual car parks, the intention is that a supportive tariff is introduced to support effective car park use.
There are also proposed changes to parking arrangements in Sherburn and Tadcaster, as part of a strategy to free up parking spaces for people using local shops and services.
