People in South Oxfordshire are being asked to have their say on proposed changes to district council car parks, including the ones in Thame.

Earlier this year the council consulted with residents on a draft car park order, which sets out car park fees and charges for the year as well as some proposed changes at its car parks.

However further consultation is now needed as there have been a number of changes to the proposals contained within the order.

People have until 5pm on August 18 to send in comments on anything in the new order.

Changes would include making people display a ticket to park for the free hour in the Thame car park.

Councillor Judith Nimmo-Smith, cabinet member responsible for parking, said: “All the comments we receive will be considered carefully by cabinet before it makes a decision on the order. Feedback we received earlier in the year on these plans resulted in us making changes, so I would really encourage people to let us know what they think about our proposals so we can make an informed decision.”
