From tomorrow, 1st October, the Midway car park will be free during peak hours (9am to 1pm). This will be 7 days a week through to the Christmas and New Year period. This is in addition to the ‘£1 after 1pm’ scheme.
These incentives are part of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council's updated Car Parking Strategy that aims to boost Covid economic recovery plans for the town centre.
With four key priorities the new strategy aims to:
🚗 Provide good quality car parks, including the replacement of the Midway with a new 450-space multi-storey as part of the massive Ryecroft development; with electric vehicle charging points and a modern, bright environment.
🚗 Improve the customer experience with new, more efficient ticket machines and better CCTV coverage.
🚗 Support economic development with free and minimum-cost incentives throughout the year and a simplified, cost-effective permit scheme.
🚗 Ensure that car parks meet future demands with joint initiative, the ‘Clean Air Project’ and extended provision of electric charging points on all Council car parks.
