Charges at council-run car parks in Ipswich are set to change next week – with increases for many visitors to the town centre.

The basic charge for using most council-run town centre car parks goes up from £1 an hour to £1.20 an hour on Tuesday, August 15.

A new flat rate of £2 after 2pm is being introduced between Monday and Friday – replacing the £1 after 3pm that has proved popular over recent years.

There are other changes to charges at long-stay car parks on the edge of the town centre.

Council leader David Ellesmere said: “Ipswich Borough Council’s car parks continue to offer the best value in town and we are keeping parking charges low to help town centre businesses. In fact Council-run car parks are still cheaper than they were five years ago.”
