Reintroduction of car parking charges in Sedgemoor District Council-owned car parks

As from Monday, 15th June, car parking charges in SDC-owned car parks, will be re-introduced, after their suspension on April 1. All SDC car parks operate a pay by phone option, should people not want to use the ticket machines. There will be an increased cleaning regime for ticket machines.

Car parking charges is a key source of funding for the services that councils provide, none more so than at this difficult time. All councils across the country are facing very challenging financial circumstances. Car parking charges are a very important source of income for Sedgemoor; one that without we will have significantly less resources to do work such as supporting town centres.

SDC is working with town and parish councils to be promoting our town centres, encouraging people to return to shop safely.

Signs have been put on the car park machines as well as other advisory signs in car parks.
