Half Hour Free Parking in Borough Council Car Parks pdf icon PDF 91 KB

This report seeks a decision from the Committee as to whether or not they wish to support a motion that the first half an hour of parking in all Epsom & Ewell Borough car parks should be free. This would come at a cost of up to £240,000 per annum at a time when income from the Council’s car parks is already falling short of the original target set out in the Councils Medium Term Financial Strategy.


In considering the viability of this motion, the Committee would need to consider what service expenditure within this Committee’s remit could be reduced to meet the above cost.

Exclusion of Press and Public pdf icon PDF 48 KB

The Committee is asked to consider whether it wishes to pass a resolution to exclude the Press and Public from the meeting in accordance with Section 100A (4) of the Local Government Act 1972 on the grounds that the business involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Act (as amended) and that pursuant to paragraph 10 of Part 2 of the said Schedule 12A the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.
