Newcastle Borough Council is proposing to keep parking prices around the town centre at its current levels in the next financial year.
Under the proposals, which are set to be discussed by the council’s cabinet on January 18, drivers who choose to park at the Midway car park would continue to pay:
£1.10 for up to one hour;
£2.10 for two hours;
£3.20 for three hours;
and £4.25 for up to four hours.
The plans will also see no change in the £4 charge for drivers who park for up to four hours on Cherry Orchard, the Civic Offices (Saturday only), Goose Street, Hassell Street and School Street.
