Changes to car parking permits - July 2016

We're making changes to our car parking permits - the deadline to leave or join the scheme in time for July is Friday 17 June.

 

There is nothing to do if you are already in the scheme - the changes will be automatically applied.

 

These changes mean a decrease in the cost of parking for many lower salary scales.

  • If you are already registered and have a permit you don’t need to do anything, changes will be applied automatically.

 

Salary sacrifice scheme

The car parking changes have been discussed at length with our Membership Council and Staff Management Partnership Forum and we believe this is a fairer approach to setting charges.

The Trust Board never takes the decision to increase car parking charges lightly. Additionally most other local trusts also adopt this approach and our charges are comparable.
