Use of Nelson Street car park for St James car club

The car club has historically found operational difficulties with finding a parking space within the residential parking area. This often results in the car being left by a user in a different place to which it was collected, then communication is needed to the next user to inform them where it is parked.

In order to resolve this a dedicated parking space will now be allocated in Nelson Street off street car park, which is owned by the council.

A charge is usually applied to ‘rent’ a space at this location (currently £480 per year), however due to there being many different users in the scheme applying this charge would be problematic. The only reasonable way would be to charge the car club for the space which would be cost prohibitive for the scheme.

The council actively supports car clubs in the county, and has provided a parking space for the scheme in Kington. Therefore in waiving the small charge that would have applied with this decision the council can continue to support this car club scheme.
