Parking fees in Halifax still under review

The proposals include measures to provide support for local businesses involved in ‘green’ industries, such as those working on sustainable energy.
There are recommendations that schools be given support to become more efficient and that Halifax’s new Central Library be built with energy efficiency in mind.
The recommendations also call for Cabinet to back an ‘Invest to Save’ initiative which will see money being invested in green projects in the shortterm in order to make savings over time.
Disgruntled drivers are still being charged to park at evenings in Halifax weeks after the council voted to drop the unpopular charges.
Councillors agreed in February to overhaul the parking charges including the removal of parking charges in the town centre after 6pm.
The tariffs have still not been changed despite the new budget coming into force on April 1.
