Lancaster venues and restaurants need bolstering with the city’s parking system https://pkw-zubehoer.com/lancaster-venues-and-restaurants-need-bolstering-with-the-citys-parking-system/ Sun, 13 Feb 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://pkw-zubehoer.com/lancaster-venues-and-restaurants-need-bolstering-with-the-citys-parking-system/ Lancaster’s theatres, entertainment venues, restaurants and hospitality businesses need a parking system that encourages, not deters, visitors, a leading adviser has said.

Lancaster’s theatres, entertainment venues, restaurants and hospitality businesses need a parking system that encourages, not deters, visitors, a leading adviser has said.

A proposed new, simpler fare system has raised concerns that patrons of theaters and restaurants will be deterred, just as theatres, arts venues and restaurants are recovering from the lockdown. Consider additional parking options for arts and entertainment audiences.

And specific discussions are needed with theaters and entertainment venues to better identify their needs and views, which may be different from those of other groups and business sectors, the city council office said.

Labor Councilor Sandra Thornberry has raised concerns over a proposed set of new parking rates for Lancaster town centre. She was speaking at Lancaster City Council’s latest cabinet meeting, during an update on proposed new rates for the district. Fees have not changed since 2018 and advisors agree that some changes are necessary.

In Lancaster the rates offered are £1 for 30 minutes, £2 for one hour, £4 for three hours, £9 for nine hours and £12 for 24 hours.

In Morecambe, short-term parking for up to three hours would have options of £2, £3 or £4.

Other Morecambe parking charges would be mainly £1, £2, £4 or £8 for 30 minutes, two hours, four hours or 24 hours respectively. Heysham is said to have options of £2 or £3 for two hours or 24 hours.

Earl Thornberry told the cabinet: ‘In relation to Lancaster town center rates, have there been any consultations by council officers with significant organizations who may be affected? I’m thinking of the Grand and Duke theaters, as well as other entertainment venues and restaurants that are often associated with them.

Green Coun Gina Dowding, who had outlined the pricing plans, said: “Business improvement organization BID and the Chamber of Commerce have had the opportunity to provide feedback to agents. It may also be possible to create flexible agreements between car parks and hospitality companies in the future, such as the former Park Safe overnight scheme. Council officers are ready to work with local businesses on options.

But during a debate, Councilor Thornberry added: “I am very concerned about the rates proposed by Lancaster. I spoke to the Grand Theater and Duke’s volunteers but didn’t get a chance to speak to the manager.

“The proposals include removing the low evening and overnight parking fees we currently have. The proposed time allocation is also increased from three to nine hours. Three hours is not enough for theater visitors. A family going to a panto would not make the round trip in three hours. Still, the £9 nine-hour fare would be a huge deterrent to a family visit.

“In the evening, many theatergoers want to spend more than three hours in the city center. Many would like a meal deal that both theaters offer. But they would face a parking charge of £9, which would be a great deterrent.

‘Pensioners can get cinema tickets for £4.50, but if they have to pay £9 parking fee they will say ‘forget it’.

“I accept that parking rates need to go up, but these plans would be a big step forward.”

Earl Thornberry added: ‘Many buses to outlying locations don’t run at 10pm so people can’t get buses home at night. They therefore rely on affordable parking lots.

“These tariffs could have a very significant and disturbing effect on the night economy and these major institutions. This is a time when they are working hard to reclaim their full audience, especially the Grand. He’s trying to bring back an older audience that has been deterred by the pandemic. »

She requested that the proposed tariffs be restructured. Perhaps a £5 six-hour fare would be an option. Morecambe had a four-hour option, she noted. So there was flexibility in different places.

She underlined: “Different elected officials are involved in this work. Lancaster’s major arts and cultural organizations are very important to the city and the district at large.

Countess Dowding said she understood the concerns. Council officers would be asked to consider additional options for parking hours and fees, as well as options for the cultural sector and overnight.

Officers agreed, but they also said data was used to craft the proposed new time options. Additionally, any new options would need to be consistent with City Council’s budget plans for 2022-23.

Labor councilor Erica Lewis added: “It’s important to look at all of this, given the importance of data and the night economy. But this is perhaps the second time that the consultations with the BID Group and the Chamber of Commerce have not been linked to the needs of the arts and culture sector. There has to be a better way to connect with arts and culture.

Councilors were told that the proposed new changes to parking fees were generally well received at a recent BID meeting.

Owners of one of Lancashire’s most historic homes have been “totally disgusted” by the ever-increasing parking problems.

Lytham Hall, an iconic and famous location dating back to 1752, has condemned the parking of ‘inconsiderate drivers’ on the grassy edges near the historic Fylde Coast property as ‘completely unacceptable’.

In a post on social media over the weekend, Lytham Hall said some drivers had not only ignored the ‘no parking’ sign at the rear door, but had now taken to crossing a curb and park on a grassy edge.

It was called an “imminent accident”, according to its supporters.

The angry Facebook post read: “This is totally unacceptable.

“We have enough trouble with people ignoring the NO PARKING sign at the back door, but now to start crossing the sidewalk and parking on the grass is going too far! Totally disgusted.”

A photograph accompanying the post shows two cars parked on a grassy edge near residential properties, with a third parked halfway down the sidewalk.

The message sparked a wave of dismay and anger with residents and fans of the beautiful hall expressing their feelings of support in the strongest possible terms.

Resident Alison Thornton, of nearby Forest Drive, called the ‘reckless parking’ ‘ridiculous’ and ‘dangerous’.

She said many of those responsible were, in her view, regular culprits.

She said, in a comment on social media: “I live on Forest Drive and it’s getting ridiculous now, the amount of reckless parking here. It’s really dangerous. A lot of the cars that park on this bend are there on a regular basis I noticed, so it seems like they use the concourse lot regularly but don’t want to contribute to the upkeep.

Julie Bullough commented that the room should “name and humiliate” those responsible, adding: “Name and humiliate. Put their vehicle registrations here!”

Other solutions suggested by furious commenters included towing, large rocks or poles placed at the location to prevent drivers from accessing the edge of the grass and the setting up of double yellow lines all around the pitch. entrance to the gate, along with warnings of clamping, with much anger at the culprits’ reluctance to pay £1 to park within the grounds of the historic hall.

Lynne Holmes commented: “It’s shocking! There’s going to be an accident around here. Too naughty to pay £1 to park in the lobby!”

His sentiments were echoed by Valerie McLachlan, who commented: ‘It is getting increasingly dangerous outside the upper gate with people parking their cars irresponsibly around the bend on both sides of the road.

She added: “An accident waiting to happen!”



Lytham Hall

Meanwhile Duncan Waller said the curb was ‘completely blocked’ by reckless parking and called for action to address the problem, which was widespread across Lytham, commenting: ‘Anyone who parks on a curb puts people disabled, people with strollers, actually using the trail anyway, at risk. The sidewalk here is totally blocked by the inconsiderate parking lot, so you have to enter the road to pass. Why don’t the police or the council take positive action by fining offending car owners? It is illegal to park on a footpath or grassy edge, but it happens all over Lytham, not just here. It is time for positive and decisive action to be taken to put an end to this illegal and dangerous parking.

Meanwhile, Sue Wilson said the location was a ‘really bad accident spot’, commenting: ‘I’m visiting my aunt who lives nearby and it’s definitely a really bad accident spot. Cars are driving too fast and cars are parked everywhere.

Linda Strong commented, “I can’t imagine how anyone could decide to pull over on the obviously manicured grass, get out, walk away and think it’s all good!”

She added: “Lytham Hall looks fabulous now; so much work has been done and all the credit goes to the management and the team of volunteers. People need to have more respect for that.

John Hornyak commented: “I feel sorry for the workforce trying to maintain this wonderful place! Thank goodness most people aren’t like them! Most are donors; the taker never cares. Join friends as a parton and get FREE parking and do some good for the place.”

The Beautiful Hall, recognized as the finest Georgian house in Lancashire, consists of a magnificent Palladian mansion dating from 1752.

A Grade I listed building, the famous site and its 80 acres of parkland are of enormous local and national interest.

The renowned site itself dates back to the 12th century when it housed a Benedictine priory, with a Jacobean mansion built in 1601, and much of the Jacobean building still remaining.

Lytham Hall Executive, which includes representatives from the charities Heritage Trust for the North West and Lytham Town Trust, oversees the management of the estate.

Free parking will be available every last Sunday of the month and every Sunday following a Saturday race meeting during the season.

Find out more about the best stories from all over Cheshire here.

This will be the fifth year in a row that the racecourse has offered free parking in a bid to increase the number of visitors to the town.

The offer was originally only at the racecourse, but it has grown so much in popularity that new spaces have been released at the Linenhall car park in 2019.

The two sites offer nearly 800 places in total.

Free parking at Chester Racecourse, CH1 2LY, and Linenhall Car Park, CH1 2LP, will be offered on the following dates:

  • January 30
  • February 27
  • March 27
  • April 24

  • July 17
  • 21st of August
  • September 10
  • September 25
  • October 30
  • November 27
  • December 18

Sam Martin, Marketing Director of Chester Race Company, said: “We are delighted to support Chester BID and our shopping neighbors in the city with the free parking initiative for the fifth consecutive year.

“The free parking initiative is always a huge success for the city and we look forward to supporting the local community again.

“We look forward to seeing the growth of downtown bars, shops and restaurants as we begin to achieve some form of normalcy in the weeks and months to come.”



Free parking offer at Chester Racecourse

Emily Ghazarian, Marketing and Events Manager at Chester BID, added: “We are delighted to be working with Chester Race Company to once again offer visitors to the city a free parking space once a month.

“It makes a day out in Chester much more affordable for those traveling by car to the city centre.”

Earlier this month we reported that plans had been tabled to redevelop the Linenhall car park near St Martin’s Way, once intended for student accommodation, to make it a permanent feature.

The car park is currently operating on a temporary arrangement.

With official plans for Morecambe’s Eden Project North due to be presented to Lancaster City Council at the end of the month, a potential 10-year deal for visitor parking and transport arrangements has been mooted as part of the process.

Over 750,000 visitors are expected each year and the Eden project must show that a satisfactory parking system can be put in place, to gain planning approval. A parking agreement with Lancaster City Council will also support an offer of government funding to help develop the Morecambe site.

Speaking at Tuesday’s (18 January) cabinet meeting at Morecambe Town Hall, Green Councilor Gina Dowding gave more details of the parking ideas, which at this stage will be known as ‘”agreement in principle”.

She said: “Eden’s full planning application will go to the next planning committee meeting. For this to be considered, Eden North is also creating a parking strategy. Our cabinet’s decision today is to approve a agreement in principle, to say that the town hall, as the owner of the car parks in the area, is happy to enter into an agreement with Eden, the details of which will be discussed later.

“I have heard concerns about the cost this could cost the council. The intention is that there will be no financial harm to the council as a result and no cost for the changes and how we release some existing car parks from the Lancaster City Council for Eden North. There will also be a dynamic parking system, so we are not designating spaces that are not needed on certain days. This agreement allows Eden North to reassure the planning committee. More details will come back to the cabinet for final approval.”

She added: “Around 400 of the council parking spaces are suggested, depending on how much traffic Eden North is expected to generate. There have been some traffic queries which will be dealt with in detail by the planning committee and with planned traffic.”

Aware of the shift to greener modes of transport and ambitions to reduce emissions, she said: “People may think there is no mitigation (to counter the impact of using However Eden North is all about sustainability and they will be looking to reduce car travel and increase other ways to get to Eden North They are also looking to intercept traffic with Park & ​​Ride on the M6 ​​so this agreement is for the municipality’s parking assets and is not a traffic plan.”

Morecambe Bay Independent Advisor Tricia Health said: “I think it’s important that we move forward. This is an agreement in principle and it’s important for Eden that this progresses at this Stadium.”

Under the agreement, parking spaces for Eden visitors would be split between Morecambe town center and a park and ride on the M6 ​​motorway. The system would be flexible and could respond to changing day-to-day visitor numbers, based on advanced booking information.

In the longer term, it is also hoped that more rail services will be provided by rail operators in Morecambe as visitor numbers increase.

A draft agreement in principle was attached to the reports of this week’s cabinet meeting. He highlighted details to consider, including car park locations, fees, direction signs, car park machine maintenance and different types of potential tickets, such as staff parking tickets. ‘Eden and parking tickets for pre-reserved and non-reserved parking spaces.

Measures will also be taken to encourage visitors to spend time elsewhere in Morecambe.

The proposed 10-year deal would also allow the car parks to be taken back into control by the city council for other uses, such as building and regeneration projects.

Cabinet advisers voted to approve the tentative agreement.

Customers who have fallen victim to unaffordable payday loans only have days to ensure they get cash back before their lender goes into administration.

Cash compensation is sent to thousands of customers who have taken out loans from Money Shop, Payday Express and Payday UK clients.

But watch your bank account, because if you don’t receive your payment by January 20, you’ll be too late.

Go here for the very latest breaking news from across the North East

After this date, the Instant Cash Loans (ICL) parent company will go into liquidation and you will not be able to get any more money, so you must notify ICL if you have not received your payment.

Borrowers have also been warned that if they didn’t submit a claim last year, they left it too late now to start.

If your application was accepted last year, the amount you will receive this time will be much less than the first installment, which arrived in May or June.

And borrowers will receive far less cash compensation than the amount loaned to them, as the £18million made available by the parent company of the three Instant Cash Loans (ICL) lenders is to be shared by almost two million of affected customers.

ICL agreed to pay only 4.31 pence for each pound borrowed in the first payment and 0.65 pence for each pound borrowed via the second cash sum.

ICL stopped offering new loans to borrowers in August 2018 and announced a compensation scheme for customers who were mis-sold before October 2019.

A number of other top companies, including Wonga, QuickQuid and Peachy, also collapsed, leaving thousands of customers without full compensation for badly sold loans.

The city’s watchdog, the Financial Conduct Authority, has been urged to close the loophole to protect customers.

A borough council is considering changes to off-street parking that have been described as “not carrot and stick, but stick and stick”.

Guildford Borough Council’s Executive Service Delivery Advisory Council met on Thursday evening (January 13) to discuss proposed changes to parking charges in Guildford town center which will be considered by the executive.

The increases cover various rates, with the aim of raising more money to maintain and improve car parks, and support the council’s budget.

A report from the council also noted that “pricing is the primary mechanism for changing user behaviour” and that the council aimed to encourage increased use of alternative modes of transport such as walking, cycling and using the park-and-ride.

But with park and rides not operating at full capacity, councilors raised concerns that people were not being offered reasonable alternatives to parking in the city centre.

Councilor John Redpath (Residents of Guildford and Villages, Holy Trinity) mentioned that a lack of bus drivers had ended the Spectrum Park and Ride program and asked if increases could be delayed.

He said: “I’m a little worried it’s not carrot and stick but stick and stick, and what can we do to get those Stagecoach buses running again?

“Or can we postpone some of these changes for a while until Stagecoach has sorted itself out?

“I’m quite concerned that you could say that we tried to discourage people from coming to the city center [in cars] but we don’t really offer an alternative.”

Councilor Ramsey Nagaty (Guildford Greenbelt Group, Shalford), said he was concerned Park & ​​Ride sites were not convenient enough to provide people with decent alternatives.

He said: ‘I would like to wonder how we can say that we encourage options and encourage people not to bring the car into the city center when there are not enough options.

He mentioned the savings that had been highlighted in the city’s cheaper car parks, but said he didn’t think they were really options.

He said: “People tend to go to city center car parks that are convenient for them. Options would be better use of park and ride sites which are much more convenient than the sites we have.”

What are the prices offered?

A ‘buyer’ rate, charged at multi-storey car parks at Bedford Rd, Castle and York Road as well as GLive, Millbrook and Tunsgate could rise from £3.00 for less than three hours, £6.00 for three to six hours and £12 for more than six hours at £3.60, £7.20 and £14.40 for the same periods.

A ‘short stay’ rate which currently ranges from £1.30 to £1.50 per hour would currently be consolidated into one rate and rise to £1.80 per hour for less than three hours and £2.30 per hour for more than three hours.

This change affects Bedford Surface, Bright Hill, Commercial Rd 2, High Street, Leapale Road Multi-Storey Car Park, Old Police Station and Saturdays only would apply to Lawn Road, Millmead House, Portsmouth Rd, Robin Hood and St Joseph’s Church. .

A new ‘cashless payment’ trial is due to start in an Oxford car park – which the council says is the first step towards removing coins from all its car parks.

The six-month trial begins on January 24 at the Gloucester Green car park, where signs will be put up to inform motorists of the change.

Paying at kiosks will be possible with cards, while people will also be able to purchase parking through phone payment provider RingGo or through Hozah, the self-payment service.

Oxford City Council said a change to a cashless system across all its sites would create an annual saving of around £12,000.

Cllr Tom Hayes, Cabinet Member for Green and Zero Carbon Transport, said: “More and more services are only available through cashless systems. Already 93% of payments in our Gloucester Green car park are cashless. The vast majority of users pay for their parking by card at the cash register, RingGo or Hozah.

“Overall, we have seen an increase in cashless payments throughout the pandemic as it is a convenient and fast way to pay. Additionally, contactless payments have been shown to reduce virus transmission, although contactless card payment remains available.

“For the council, this represents a means of reducing the administrative costs of our car parks – a welcome factor at a time when our finances are stretched to the limit.”

The trial will not affect parking managed by other operators, such as at Westgate Center or Oxfordshire County Council on-street spaces.

The city council approved the switch to cashless for all its services in February this year.

North East carmaker TMD Friction is to create nearly 50 new jobs and spend £1million on a new paint line.

The global company’s Hartlepool base, which makes brake friction materials for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, is expected to create 48 new jobs, bringing the workforce to 508.

The £1m investment in the paint line brings total funds secured this year to over £3m while supporting the creation of 48 new jobs – an investment that follows a difficult year for the business, primarily due to circumstances beyond its control.

The coronavirus pandemic led TMD Friction to make numerous changes to operations to adhere to social distancing guidelines, while isolation rules that were in place until September meant that at one point the company had 25% of its staff at home.

Earlier this year, more than £2million was spent on the factory, including a new paint line, air compressors and equipment and software to dramatically improve the way the business communicates with its staff.

Now the additional investment of £1 million in a second new paint line means TMD is well placed to meet its production target of 120,000 pieces per week, all in a more energy efficient way.

UK Operations Director Tom Russell said: “Looking back over the past 12 months, it is clear that our business has achieved so much in a very difficult global climate.

“The investment obtained from our parent company throughout the year has been well received and reinforces the group’s commitment to our factory.

“And now to be able to announce an additional £1million for the introduction of another new paint line, which will dramatically increase production, quality and carbon emissions, means we are ending 2021 striving to achieve our target of 120,000 pieces per week. , which was our target at the beginning of the year.

“Of course, investing in machinery and equipment is one thing, but investing in our workforce is just as important to us – we know it’s our people who are key to our continued growth and I want to really want to thank them for their efforts as we know it’s been a tough year for many.

“We are ending the year with a bang and it is a tremendous boost for our loyal and dedicated staff to know that further significant investments are being made in Hartlepool.

“At times it has been difficult, but we are now ideally placed to continue on this positive trajectory into 2022, achieving the ambitious targets we set ourselves at the start of this year.”

As a global manufacturer of brake pads, the Hartlepool plant produces pads for 95% of models for the European aftermarket, including emergency service vehicles and many retail small trucks and vans.

A north-east London council plans to build tiny parks the size of parking spaces in the borough.

The Waltham Forest Council invites local businesses to send in their ideas for what they call “parklets” to be established throughout the borough of East London.

Parklets, or mini-parks, have been popping up around Waltham Forest and other parts of London for several years as part of an initiative to promote green and outdoor community spaces and to stimulate local small businesses such as cafes. and restaurants.

Spaces can be as small as parking lots or pedestrian refuge islands that have been repurposed to “improve the cityscape”.

The council says it is currently “developing plans for a resident-led parking program, with an emphasis on low-cost, resident-developed and managed interventions that further highlight of ways in which a single parking space can be reimagined ”.



Waltham Forest led the way by rolling out parklets in London

The initiative is co-financed by the council and local businesses, with the council taking charge of the construction and maintenance of the spaces.

Local actors are responsible for their use and general maintenance.

Cllr Clyde Loakes, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “People are so used to parked cars that dominate our streets that we may not realize how much space they actually occupy.

“But instead of using a parking space for a polluting piece of metal that sits dormant 95% of the time, we could instead use the space for a small garden, seating for a cafe or a park where our children could play. in.

“Piece by piece, we are dismantling an idea that has dominated our culture for the past 50 years that the car is king, so these Parklets will allow residents to reclaim some of their territory from parked cars.”

The inhabitants of the district have largely responded positively to the few parklets already built.

One person described a parklet built on Winchelsea Road as a “wonderful space and a great improvement over the slightly gloomy outlook previously (usually a side view of a pickup truck)”.

The owner of a local wine bar also said the parklet was “loved by everyone”, adding: “our little corner of Waltham Forest just makes it better.”

But not all residents are happy with the small green spaces.

However, some expressed shock at the costs involved in building the parklet on Winchelsea Road, as well as another on Coppermill Lane.

The two parklets, which were both funded by Transport for London, together cost a total of £ 38,760.

The Council will unveil more details on the program in early 2022.
