Parking in Bexleyheath town centre is about to get more expensive. Well maybe not, it depends if you are fool enough to pay £1 for a space in a council car park or 50 pence to a supermarket.

The pictures on this page were all taken between 1:20 and 1:40 on the afternoon of 25th March. All the council run parks had spaces and there were queues for the supermarket ones to save the 30 pence. From next week the saving will be 50 pence. The council hopes to raise an extra £208.000 a year from its attempt to further damage the town’s shopping centres.

All the parking meters throughout the borough (most are set at 40 pence for half an hour) will rise to 50 pence for half an hour to “assist the introduction of cashless parking (pay by mobile phone)”.

Parking permits which were £35 six months ago and now £70 will rise to £100. Those that are now £90 will go up to £120. Visitors permits rise by 25% and 33% dependent on area.

Car parking season tickets rise by between 20% and 40%.
