CAR parking charges are set to rise by 20p to earn the Town Hall an extra £186,000 – even though Lancaster City Council is underspent by £1.12m.

The pay and display price hike is among fund-raising ideas to be discussed at the next council cabinet meeting on January 18.

The suggestions are to increase charges by 20p in short stay car parks for stays of up to one hour, two hours, three hours, four hours and evenings, and in long stay car parks for stays of up to one hour and evenings.
