I have read that Parkway parking scam charges have been reduced, apparently. Good news if true, or if not just a seasonal thing!

That's good, and I hope they profit from the initiative. It would hopefully create a more balanced parking distribution in town.

Now why would they want to do that I wonder?
Footfall not meeting expectations possibly?
The cost of parking certainly deters me from shopping in the town so how many more?

Great news for visitors and residents of the district, anyone know what the council have paid Parkway from revenue at other car parks since it opened?

Come on Richard you expect an answer from the council? Dream on! rolleyes.gif

I think they have had to drop their prices as the car park has never been fully utilised!
One of the rare occasions I went into town, to get a prescription dispensed, and walked passed the car park there were very few cars parked and the road leading to it was bereft of traffic.

How can you walk past an underground car park?

I have walked past it. You can't tell how empty or full it is.

I have my own private parking space in town, so don't need to use any public car park.

I doubt that footfall is the issue - 'wheelfall' is surely the issue. They are not making enough from the car park because most people use cheaper council parking - perhaps a lot more will use it now.

That would have been a Saturday, then... Hardly surprising.

Yep, Saturday, mainly youths with a couple of quid in their pocket buying very little and making a noisy nusance of themselves and single mums pushing a pushchair to the pound shop! tongue.gif

Either way, on the face of it, a price drop could be seen as a good thing these days. Since Parkway has opened, I find myself less inclined to just pop into town these days. This is due to two main reasons: my preferred car park, Kennet Shopping, has become a lot busier; and Parkway is a bit pricey and out-of-the-way.

Isn't that coincidental, since the Kennet Centre multistorey and Parkway are opposite ends of the town? I read your post as implying that your preferred car park has become busier because Parkway has opened. Northcroft is much closer for people wanting to shop in Parkway.

This coincidence seemed to happen immediately Parkway was started, but you can deduce what you like, I'm only stating what I have found. Whether it is due to Parkway or not, the council car parks are often close to full on Saturdays, where as Parkway has plenty of spaces by comparison.

It is also further to drive and more awkward to access for people from the south of the Newbury area.

I quite agree. If you live on the south side it is a PITB having to go all the way round the Robin Hood when there is a very much under used bridge over the river/canal.
