Swansea Labour gives backing for extended cheaper parking offer to help city motorists

The Swansea Labour-led administration is to continue to help city motorists to benefit from cheaper parking charges.

Swansea Council’s offer of all day parking for just £2, first introduced as a COVID-19 measure in November 2020, is being extended.

On top of the all-day charge, car owners coming into Swansea for two hours or less will only need to pay £1 for parking in any one of the city centre multi-storey car parks or one of the many pay & display car parks.

Further offers have been extended to car parks in Mumbles as well with the charge for a three-hour parking fee remaining at a reduced price from £4 down to £2.

Labour Cllr Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment Enhancement & Infrastructure Management, said: “The coronavirus pandemic has had a severe impact on the city for well over a year. As a council, we have responded as quickly as we can to the changes to our day to day lives.

“We need to do all we can to encourage more people back into the city centre and I’m confident shoppers, city centre workers and visitors will welcome this extension to our ongoing parking offer.”

In recent months, there has also been a major investment to roll out a £280k upgrade to all 72 Pay & Display machines in Swansea to make it easier for motorists to pay for parking.

Cllr Thomas added: “As well as offering cheaper parking for the thousands of car owners visiting the city centre, we are continuing to invest in our car parks to make them more attractive and also make it easier for motorists to pay their parking fee.

“This includes resurfacing many of our city centre car parks and also installing new payment machines.”
