FOI request (FOI222589)
Parking Permit Costs
Requested Fri 01 September 2017
Responded Fri 01 September 2017
I am requesting the following information under the Freedom of Information Act. Please can you answer the following questions in writing.
- Does the council have any measures which incentivize the use of low-emission vehicles such as reductions in parking permit costs or parking permit charges?
- What is the incentive? If money is saved, please state the amount.
- What criteria does the vehicle need to meet to qualify for the incentive/discount?
- How many individual vehicles have used the scheme in each of the years since it has been in place? This can be financial or calendar years.
Hastings Borough Council (HBC) do not have reduced permit prices for car parking for low emission or electric vehicles. HBC only manage off street car parks in Hastings, on street services managed by East Sussex County Council: www.eastsussex.gov.uk
We do provide though two charge points in our car parks and we do not charge for the electricity or add costs for the use of these charge points - the idea behind this was to incentivise the uptake of EV vehicles.
