Have your say: car park changes

Uttlesford District Council want your views on their proposed changes to their car parks.

A consultation has been launched inviting residents to share their thoughts on the District Council’s plans for the authority’s car parks in Uttlesford. The proposals affect Stansted’s car parks in Lower Street and Crafton Green.

What do they propose?

Crafton Green Car Park: Short stay parking will be introduced with a maximum stay time of three hours. The idea is this will ensure a greater turnover of parking spaces. Season tickets use will be withdrawn at the car park.

Lower Street Car Park Long stay parking will still be available. Hybrid season tickets are to be used. These will offer discounted parking based on the number of uses (and hours) within a set period. Hybrid tickets are aimed at commuters who may also work from home.

Parking Fees Tariffs – unchanged since 2015 – will go up

Sunday & Bank Holiday Charges Users at both car parks will have to pay £1 on Sundays and bank holidays

MiPermit Fees At both car parks users will be charged a 10p fee each time they use the MiPermit parking app (currently this is incurred by the district council)

Extending charging times From 5pm to 6pm
