Parking charges frozen in Craven for fifth year running

Parking charges in Craven District Council's car parks will remain the same for the fifth year in a row, the council's policy committee has agreed.

The cost of parking permits has also been frozen - meaning permits still cost as little as 13p per day.

Paul Ellis, Craven District Council's Director of Services, said: "These are difficult times financially for local authorities but we felt it was important to keep parking charges the same in order to maintain the vibrancy of our towns and encourage more visitors."

The majority of permit holders will need to renew their permits by the end of March. If no details have changed, holders can renew quickly and simply online at

Alternatively you can post a cheque or postal order payable to 'Craven District Council' or call in to pay at reception by card or cheque: you will need your parking permit number (renewals) or vehicle registration number details.

A range of different parking permits are available for Craven residents, ranging from £47.50 for a 12-month short stay pass, to £315 for a 12-month unlimited permit.

Charges in Skipton's High Street car park will remain at £1.20 for an hour and £8 for more than four hours, while parking in Coach Street will stay at £1.10 for an hour and £4.50 for more than four.

Parking in Ashfield Car Park, Settle, will remain at £1 for an hour, and £3.10 for four; and at Backgate, Ingleton, 90p for an hour, and £3.60 for four.

The council has also retained its pop and shop scheme which allows shoppers to park at the High Street Car Park for up to 30 minutes for 20p.
