LIST: The Wiltshire towns with the cheapest car parks

Salisbury has the most expensive parking charges of all off-street car parks run by Wiltshire Council.

According to the charges on the Wiltshire Council website, the cheapest car park in Salisbury city centre is £1.10 for one hour.

This is far more expensive than the cheapest council-run car parks in other Wiltshire towns.

This comes as Wiltshire Council plans to increase car park charges all over the county.

Proposals include adding 10p per hour on every tariff, introducing charges for parking on Sundays, removing free parking after 3pm in Culver Street, and increasing charges for visitor permits in on-street residential zones.

The plans are being voted on today (Tuesday February 15), at the Council meeting at Trowbridge Civic Centre. 

At the moment, the cost to park in the off-street car parks in Salisbury is around £1.50 for one hour.

Culver Street is the exception, and Salisbury’s cheapest off-street car park – at £1.10 for one hour.

This is much more than other council-run car parks in the county, with other towns offering free parking all day or charging as little as 20p.

It is free to park all day in Box (Market Place car park), Castle Combe (Dunns Lane), Cricklade (Town Hall), Mere, Pewsey, and Tisbury (Avenue).

The first hour costs 20p in Amesbury (Central car park), Calne (Church Street), Malmesbury (Burnham Road), and the cheaper Westbury car parks.

It is 30p in Corsham (Post Office Lane), Devizes (Station Road), Melksham, and Royal Wootton Bassett (Wood Street).
