Coventry Telegraph - - NEWS -

PRICES have been slashed at a Coven­try city cen­tre car park af­ter it was taken over by new own­ers.

Park­ing giant NCP has re­cently taken over the Bel­grade Plaza multi-storey and dropped prices by a around 30 per cent.

It now costs £1.20 for two hours in­stead of £1.80, three hours is now £1.80 rather than £2.50, while a 24-hour stay will cost you £8.

A sea­son ticket has gone down from £750 to £500, and it’s just £1 on Sun­days and Bank Holidays, ex­clud­ing Good Fri­day.

As be­fore the car park is open 24 hours, and has a manned re­cep­tion from 7.30am to 10.45pm seven days a week.

Brian Devon­shire, head of op­er­a­tions at NCP, told the Tele­graph the firm had been look­ing to get into Coven­try for a long time. “It’s an im­por­tant city for us,” he said. “We’re ex­cited about open­ing in the city and are look­ing for more lo­ca­tions there as well.

“What stood out (about Bel­grade Plaza) is that it’s in a great cen­tral lo­ca­tion, a good lo­ca­tion for peo­ple to park and en­joy ev­ery­thing.

“There’s the the­atre on the doorstep, and good for the shops.”

He said NCP had al­ready re­placed the park­ing ma­chines at a cost of £160,000, and was also in the process of clean­ing, re­paint­ing and re­brand­ing the car park.
