Parking permits

Shropshire Council keen to offer tourism businesses the opportunity to purchase parking permits registered to the business

Shropshire Tourism raised concern with the Council following feedback from several members over recent changes introduced to the parking permit arrangements.

Shropshire Council has now looked into the matter for tourism businesses to purchase parking permits which are registered to the business rather than individual vehicle registration.  Shropshire Council will seek to have a system in place as soon as possible but by law the council is required to amend the current Traffic Regulation Orders to detail this provision and the associated charges. This will involve a 21 day consultation on the proposals and the consideration of any objections. A representative from Shropshire Council said it is their intention to begin this consultation as soon as possible.
