Bosses claim it will reduce congestion

Shoppers visiting Broadway Shopping Centre are set to face a dramatic price hike in parking charges this week.

From Wednesday, some prices at Square car park, near Sainsbury’s, will more than double, while costs will also rise at the centre’s multi-storey car park.

Today is the last day visitors will be charged 50p to leave their car at the Square for an hour, with prices rising to £1.20 tomorrow.

A full list of price changes can be found below.

Bosses at the shopping centre say there has not been an rise in parking costs for more than 10 years and have announced it is bringing in a new £500,000 payment system, which will see its machinery upgraded.

A spokesperson from New River, which owns the Bexleyheath shopping centre, said: “We can confirm that as of October 25 we are changing the pricing structure of our car parks.

“The reason for this primarily is down to customer experience, we want to alleviate congestion in the very popular and somewhat oversubscribed Square car park which will allow shoppers who need to use the supermarket and nearby shops more spaces to pop in and get their shopping whilst still maintaining a low cost tariff.

“In order to do this we will charge £1.20 for one hour at the Square car park and £1.50 charge for two hours at our main centre car park, both charges are much cheaper, or in line with most busy Greater London car parks.”

The new parking charges at the Square are:

· Up to an hour: £1.20 (formerly 50p)

· Two hours: £2 (formerly £1)

· Three hours: £2.50 (formerly £1.30)

· Three to five hours: £5 (formerly £2.30 for three to four hours and £3.50 for four to five hours)

· Max stay of six hours: £6 (formerly £4.50 for a five to six hour stay and £5.50 for a six to seven hour stay).

· Anyone caught parking for longer will be charged £5 per hour

The new parking charges at the main centre multi-storey car park are:

· Up to an hour: £1

· Two hours: £1.50 (formerly £1)

· Three hours: £2.00 (formerly £1.50)

· Four hours: £2.50 (formerly £1.50)

· Five to six hours: £3.50 (formerly £2.70)

· Six hours plus: £7 (formerly £5)

· Monthly: £40.00
