City centre transformation
We're proposing to improve transport and boost the city and town centres by transforming pedestrian areas and making major changes to parking through the use of new technology.
A report to Policy and Resources Committee on Wednesday 16 December set out a package of measures including the decking of Station Road West car park to create 140 more spaces, the greater use of technology through the introduction of barriers and cameras at car parks to make them ticketless, an extra 200 spaces at Wincheap park and ride and the refurbishment of key shopping areas such as St George's Street.
We are also setting out our plans for parking charges in the city for the next four years.

We briefed business leaders and representatives of community groups and you can also read the slides from that presentation.
