PARKING charges are going up.

Brighton and Hove City Council says the charges are to help manage high-demand times and areas, reduce congestion and improve air quality.

There will be an increase of between 10p and 50p for two, four and 11 hour rates in some on-street zones and car parks.

Resident, visitor, business, trader or hotel permits will not change, nor will those for schools, doctors, professional carers. Residents can get a 50 per cent discount on a resident permit if they have a low emission vehicle or electric vehicle. Visit for more information.
