Charges at two Wolverhampton city centre car parks have been slashed amid complaints about parking rates being too high, it was revealed today.
The evening tariff at the NCP-owned car park in Pipers Row has been cut from £5 to £3.50 after 6pm.
And at Church Street, the charges have gone down from £3 all day to £2 for people parking before 9.30am.
The changes come after rates were cut at the Wulfrun Centre in Wolverhampton and Freer Street in Walsall.
NCP cluster manager Derek Kirkwood said: “After listening to our customers and from your readers about the evening charge for Pipers Row being too expensive, NCP has reduced the tariff from £5 to £3.50 after 6pm effective immediately.
“This will be a great aid to the evenings for late night shopping and those visiting local attractions.”
Mr Kirkwood also said a wider review of car parking charges across NCP sites in Wolverhampton would be carried out in the new year.
He added: “As part of a city wide review, I will also be looking at the whole tariff structure of this car park early in the new year.”
In August, NCP reduced its weekend charges at Pipers Row. All day parking on Saturdays and Sundays costs £2.50. Prior to that it was £2.50 an hour and £12 for more than four hours.
