Car Parking Update

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Community Services submitted a report updating members on current car parking issues and electric charging.


He reminded members that the Car Park working group had received a study outlining the position with capacity on short stay car parks in Clitheroe Town Centre, which was close to capacity at peak times.


Possible options had been discussed and a feasibility study carried out on the provision of a deck on Chester Avenue car park. This had since been discarded as a suitable site, and another site was now being considered and a feasibility report prepared.


Regarding electric charging points, 14 had been installed on council car parks and officers were in the process of investigating the introduction of charging points at the council offices and depot.




1.    Ask officers to continue to investigate how additional parking can be delivered for Clitheroe, and ask Policy and Finance committee to retain provision in the capital programme for new parking facilities (although not on the Chester Avenue site), and


2.    Support officers in pursuing the introduction of more charging points in the council car parks.
