At July’s cabinet meeting the 2022/23 Month 2 Budget Monitoring Report showed that the car parking revenues are way down, mostly due to the season ticket holders not renewing.
My own experience of driving into the car parks is that there is always plenty of space… it wasn’t always that way. This surely has to be about bringing shoppers back to Windsor?
The 1 hr free parking offer is obviously not catching the public mood even though it is being held up as the answer at any given opportunity by the administration and their fans.
The Advantage Card scheme worked but as I recall, the administration saw circa £1m of extra parking revenue could be generated if the Advantage Card was culled and so the poorly managed introduction of new machines and the bonus excuse that there were too many Advantage Cards in circulation were used to bring it to an end.
With 3 hours parking for £1.50 for residents it worked.
