Free Saturday parking in Halifax to end

Parking charges in Calderdale will change - as the council start advertising a series of Traffic Regulation Orders - which include taking away free parking in Halifax on Saturdays.

A maximum charge of £3 will be enforced Monday to Friday at High Street, North Bridge, Cross Hills, King Street, Hanover Street, Victoria Street, Union Street and Prescott Street in the town. Calderdale Council say this would save people who park all day up to £2 per day.

An evening charge will now apply until 8pm, not 6pm.

A £1 charge will now be made on Saturdays at Cross Hills, Victoria Street, High Street and Mulcture Hall Road. Free parking will still be offered in all of the above four car parks on Saturdays in the six weeks leading up to Christmas.
