Discount parking is available in all town centres and high streets across the borough for Richmond Card Holders after the Council converted pay and display machines to accept the new card.
Residents are entitled to free parking for stays of up to 30 minutes in pay and display bays and the Council’s two multi-storey car parks. For stays of longer than 30 minutes, residents will receive 10% off the standard parking tariff or 20% if they are 75 or over.
Around 60,000 residents in Richmond automatically received a new and improved Richmond Card earlier this month. The card combines business offer discounts at high street shops across the borough, library membership, and the opportunity to join local sports and fitness centres. There are now 161 offers from 132 participating businesses, and more than 1,300 residents have signed-up for a new card.
Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Pamela Fleming, said:
“The Richmond Card provides a range of exclusive business offers for borough residents. In one handy card you can receive discounts in high street shops, free parking, plus library and leisure centre membership.
“We are doing everything we can to keep residents shopping businesses. The Richmond Card helps us to achieve both of these aims and we hope it will also encourage people to look at the wide range of activities available at our libraries and leisure centres.”
Residents without a Richmond Card can sign-up online at www.richmond.gov.uk/richmondcard
