Council car parks: trial of free half hour parking
Cornwall Council is trialling a scheme offering free parking for half an hour in all Council run car parks.
The offer, which begins on 1 March and runs until 20 April, has been developed in response to calls from some local businesses for free, limited-time parking to allow people to make a flying visit to their local town centre.
The Council will be monitoring the response to this offer to assess how much demand there is for free half hour parking and where that demand is greatest.
As it would be too costly to change the pay and display machines in all the Council run car parks for this trial, anyone wanting to take advantage of the offer will need to use the RingGo mobile phone payment service.
Although this system is very easy to use, first time users will be required to provide some initial information and so they may find it easier to register online at www.ringgo.co.uk
