Councillors have agreed to recommend new parking charges for Lincoln.

Members of the City of Lincoln Council's executive passed the proposal last night and are calling on tonight's full council meeting at the Guildhall to ratify the new tariffs.

If final approval is granted, the charge at shopper car parks including Tentercroft Street will be frozen for 2013/14 at £1.50 for the first hour and £2.50 for two hours, while the three-hour tariff could rise to £4.

​All other costs for shoppers will remain the same, apart from a rise to £3 at Lucy Tower in the evening.

Season tickets will be frozen for the year and the all day commuter charges at Broadgate, Chaplin Street and Rosemary Lane cut from £5 to £4.

Three hours' parking for visitors at the Castle, Westgate, The Lawn and Langworthgate are set to rise by 20p to £4.20 and the all day levy increase from £6 to £7.

And Rosemary Lane will have a £2 all day tariff in July and August when Lincoln College is shut.

A new £2.50 all day weekend parking fee at car parks in Broadgate, Rosemary Lane, Sessions House and County Offices will also come into force.

The changes are due to come into effect from April 1.

The executive also agreed to press ahead with building five more council homes after a former garage site was identified in Stapleford Avenue, Ermine, Lincoln.

A scheme to protect payments to council tax benefit claimants amid Government welfare reform was approved by the executive but final approval is sought at tonight's council meeting, which begins at 6.30pm.
