Cornwall car park's charges cut for winter
Motorists have received an early Christmas present from Cornwall Council which has slashed charges at one of its car parks in Wadebridge.
The Piggy Lane long-stay car park will now cost £1 per day, in a move Cornwall councillor Scott Mann believes will help improve trading in the town during winter months.
The new charging at the 197-space car park will apply until March 14, when summer tariffs come into force and it will cost £3.10 for a stay of up to three hours and £4.70 for longer than four hours, but parking after 4pm will remain free.
Mr Mann said he was delighted the reduced parking charge had come into force at £1 per day.

"We have now separated summer charging and winter charging and we believe that this will help local residents and local businesses at this very difficult economic time," he said.
"This is in addition to last year's changes to provide free car parking after 4pm in all Cornwall Council car parks in Wadebridge."
Wadebridge Chamber of Commerce chair Dominic Walford hoped the reduced parking charges would give an added boost to festive shopping in the town.
"It's great to see both Cornwall Council and Wadebridge Town Council doing their bit to help us and we thank them for it. Wadebridge has so much to offer in retail choice."
