A new pricing system is being introduced for car parking at some of Northamptonshire County Council’s country parks from 1st April 2019.
 
The money raised through charging for parking will be ploughed directly back into the service to help pay for the ongoing maintenance of the parks.
 
The increase was agreed as part of the council’s budget approved in February.
 
The changes:

Up to four hours                                           £3                          £3.20
Up to eight hours                                         N/A                        £5.20
Up to 12 hours                                              £5                          £7.20
 
Annual season ticket
Covering all five parks                                £50                             £51.50

I'm sure the money raised will be well spent, (if it genuinely goes to the country park and not into the money pit of our council) but I can't have feeling that it pushes low income users away from public spaces which saddens me. These kind of facilities should be free for all. It seems anyone parking along roads close to our country parks and walking in gets booked too, so there is no alternative than to pay the extortionate parking fees.
