South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) will be introducing changes to parking in South Oxfordshire from April.
Motorists parking in district council car parks in Didcot, Goring, Henley, Thame or Wallingford are advised that from Monday 4th April 2022:
- There will be a new charging period, from 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday;
- There will be a small increase in parking fees;
- New and renewed permits will only be valid for the specific car park for which they are issued and will not be transferable.
In past years, motorists in the district have benefited from low parking fees. However, costs are increasing and losses have been sustained for the last two years.
SODC is introducing these changes to help ensure the car parks break even, with the aim of ensuring that car park users cover the cost of the service, rather than the council tax payer.
