Parking in Kilburn Road coach car park for a 24-hour period has also increased from £5.10 to £5.60.

Administration fees for on-street resident parking permits will increase 10%, from £50 to £55.

Other on-street permits will increase from £20 to £22. Suspension and dispensation fees will also increase from £37.50 to £45.

Coun Christine Wise (LibDem - Uppingham), portfolio holder for transport, environment and communities said: “Parking charges are important because they help to encourage a healthy turnover of parking spaces for shoppers and visitors, as well as discouraging illegal parking and unnecessary car journeys.

“The charges also help to pay for the parking service that enforces parking rules.”

In addition to contactless payments at ticket machines and RingGo payment options via smartphone, telephone and text, car park users are able to pay by cash or card at PayPoint outlets in both Oakham and Uppingham.
