Parking Services annual report

Harrogate Borough Council has responsibility for the setting of charges for off-street car parks and North Yorkshire County Council is responsible for managing the on-street parking provision. The council's off-street charges are set in accordance with the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, for the purposes of supporting traffic management objectives and with the approval of the Highway's Authority (North Yorkshire County Council).

Income generated by off-street parking is used to offset the cost of running parking services as a whole. This will include the costs of employing staff, provision of equipment (parking machines, payment facilities, cash collection) as well as maintenance of the car parking infrastructure. In the past the surplus has been used for the upgrading of West Park, resurfacing of the parking bays and the upgrade of the car parking ticket system.

To find out how North Yorkshire County Council uses the on-street surplus income, you would need to contact North Yorkshire County Council.

If you would like more information on this please contact the Freedom of Information team to complete an FOI request.
