Dorset CouncilA trial reduction of charges in three Dorset Council car parks is to take place this summer and early autumn.

The car parks are located in the main coastal towns: Swannery in Weymouth, West Bay Road in West Bay, and Charmouth Road in Lyme Regis.

From 1 July until 31 October 2024, the tariffs in these car parks will reduce from the current peak rates (summer) to the off-peak (winter) rate.

The rates will be:

Up to 30 minutes: £0.80
Up to 1 hour: £1.50
Up to 2 hours: £2.30
Up to 3 hours: £3.30
Up to 4 hours: £5.30
Up to 10 hours: £9

At the end of the trial (31 October), the charges will remain the same but revert to the usual off-peak rate in line with the seasonal tariff change in other Dorset Council car parks.

The council says the reason for the trial is to help it to understand the impact through numbers using the car parks, the impact on the highway network, and the financial impact on the council’s budget.

No other Dorset Council car park charges are affected by this trial.

A survey will also be taking place to help gather data on use of the car parks during the trial and the impact on the local economy. It will be available at the affected car parks from mid-July.
