Waverley Borough Council has announced that parking tariffs in all council-owned car parks will be reinstated from Wednesday 1 July.
The council suspended enforcement of all parking charges on 27 March, in order to support key workers and volunteers responding to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Officers are currently working to ensure that car parks can operate safely, by installing new signs with social distancing instructions and marking out 2 metre queueing guides at all ticket machines. Some of the charges will have changed since enforcement was suspended in March, due to the new tariffs, which were announced in February, having come into effect from 1 April.
By the time parking charges are resumed, the council says it will have provided 96 days of free parking to support local communities, losing around £100,000 of revenue per week.
Waverley has committed to continue its support of the Surrey NHS and Care Worker Permit scheme, enabling holders of these permits to park for free in all of its car parks.
