Shropshire Council is proposing a major overhaul of parking arrangements and charges across the county. The consultation creates an opportunity for us to reorganise our car parks and on street parking. This post reviews how we might use our off-street parking most efficiently at the Castle Street and Smithfield car parks. In my view, Castle Street should remain a short-term car park and not become indefinite-stay as Shropshire Council is proposing. One option we might consider is to extend Smithfield to include the Youth Centre car park at weekends.
