Selby drivers face car park price rise

Car parking charges in a North Yorkshire town are to rise following a three-year price freeze.

Selby Council said it planned a "slight" increase after carrying out a review of charges at council-owned pay and display car parks.

It said it had introduced a price freeze at Selby car parks in 2008 to support traders during the economic downturn.

The price rise is expected to take effect later in the autumn.

The council said as part of its review it had decided to allow free parking at all its car parks in the run-up to Christmas.

It said it hoped the move, on the two Saturdays before Christmas, would be a "real boost" to businesses and shoppers in the festive period.
