Residents already begin to benefit from a Labour controlled Brent Council: Fairer Parking Charges

Off-street parking charges reduced

Charges for parking off-street near Preston Road have been reduced to support local shopping in the area.

The aim of reducing the charges is to encourage more use of a 167 space car park, known locally as Tenterden car park, and accessed via Preston Road.

The car park, which has CCTV security and good lighting, now charges from 20p for half an hour to a very reasonable £2.80 for the day.

As on street parking in the area has previously caused problems for residents and local businesses alike, the new charging regime aims to encourage those parking on-street to do so for shorter periods of time. This should in turn stimulate local business by increasing the turnover of available parking spaces, and thereby increasing passing trade for the local shops.
