Rutland County Council Parking Charge Icreases Uppingham and Oakham

Rutland County Council Parking Charges Uppingham and Oakham

Rutland County Council is increasing all parking charges in the county towns.

Dave Brown, Director for Places said “By introducing standard charges across all our car parks we’re creating a much simpler and fairer system. We also need to factor in rises in inflation, which haven’t been applied to parking charges in Rutland for many years”

Uppingham saw  a increase in parking charges last year after Uppingham Town Council stopped
paying a  £8,500 per year to Rutland County Council to subsidise charges, it had paid since 2012.

In July 2016 the local paper reported Uppingham parking charges would remain cheaper than Oakham's




Rutland County Council News:

New car parking charges across all of Rutland’s car parks come into effect on Monday July 3rd
The changes, following a review of fees and charges for all Council services were approved by Cabinet earlier this year.

The new 80p per hour car parking charges in all Rutland car parks will bring Uppingham in line with Oakham making the cost of parking the same in both towns. Some fees will rise  but this will represent the first parking fee rise since 2013

Dave Brown, Director for Places said “By introducing standard charges across all our car parks we’re creating a much simpler and fairer system. We also need to factor in rises in inflation, which haven’t been applied to parking charges in Rutland for many years”

Discount day tickets will be available which allow parking for up to 24 hours and will cost £4 The cost of a weekly discount ticket will start at £15 and an annual season ticket will cost £432. Annual residents’ parking permits will cost £40 in both Oakham and Uppingham.

These changes mean that roving will be permissible between Oakham and Uppingham and that a single ticket will be valid in both towns’ car parks for the duration of the ticket. The short stay car parks will still operate a 4 hour maximum length of stay.

Drivers can choose to pay for parking by coin at pay and display machines, by debit or credit card or using their mobile phone, although card payments via pay and display machines will be phased out over the next year.
