25 May 2011 - Changes to Sunday and evening car park charges
Sunday charges are being introduced at all London Borough of Bexley pay and display car parks as part of the Council's response to the national squeeze on public spending.
Motorists parking in pay and display car parks in Bexleyheath in the evening will also need to pay to park as 24-hour charges are introduced from Monday 6 June.
New signs are being put up in car parks and adverts placed in local newspapers to let residents know about the changes.
The introduction of Sunday charges across the borough and 24-hour charges in Bexleyheath are among a series of changes the Council is making to help it safeguard key frontline services.
Cabinet Member for Public Realm and Community Safety Cllr Peter Craske said: "Strategy 2014 was published last November setting out line by line all the plans to calmly deal with the largest reduction to council funding since the Second World War.
"It set out a number of charges that would be increased or introduced in order to help protect key universal services like adult social care, collecting waste and repairing roads from the spending reductions.
"95% of residents who responded said they backed our strategy, which has also frozen Council Tax for all residents."
The Council operates 21 pay and display and one disabled badge holder only car park in the borough. Sixteen of the car parks have been awarded the Safer Parking Award.
The new arrangements will not affect free parking on Bank holidays.
