Residents have just three more days to have their say on West Lindsey District Council’s plan to charge for car parking in Market Rasen.

A 28-day public consultation on the proposal ends this Friday, May 20.

The council wants to charge people to park in John Street, Festival Hall and Kilnwell Road car parks - and hopes to have ticket machines in place by the summer.

The move is estimated to generate an additional £50k for the council but will cost £65,000 to put into action and there will also be an ongoing annual £31,000 cost to cover enforcement, operating and maintenance costs.

Charges will range from 30p for up to one hour to £1.95 for six or more hours.

And there will be free parking after 3pm.

To have your say go to west-lindsey.gov.uk/mrasenparking or call 01427 676676. Or you can share your views in person at the Market Rasen or Gainsborough WLDC offices.
