Increase of 10 per cent

I NOTE that the charge in the Grove Park car parking area has increased from �1 per hour to �1.10 per hour.

I NOTE that the charge in the Grove Park car parking area has increased from �1 per hour to �1.10 per hour. This is, if my limited maths serve me, an increase of 10 per cent. I would like to read a justification for this by North Somerset Council.

I say read because we never see or hear them do we? Whilst on the subject it would be interesting to know how much revenue North Somerset Council generates from parking in Weston and what percentage actually returns to Weston, but I suppose I'll have to use the Freedom of Information for that.

Is this a case of a moderate council tax increase but stealth tax elsewhere?
