PROPOSALS to introduce parking charges at a number of county council-owned car parks to fund new investment have received mixed reactions.

At a meeting at County Hall in Morpeth on Tuesday, the authority’s cabinet approved proposals to introduce parking charges at Haltwhistle and Prudhoe railway stations and the Tyne Riverside Country Park at Prudhoe, subject to an eight-week consultation starting this month and running until January.

However, county councillor for Stocksfield, Mickley and Riding Mill, Coun. Anne Dale, said she was concerned that the charges would have a knock-on effect for residents in her ward.

“Here in the Tyne Valley, we have poor train access so most people travel to Prudhoe station because the trains to Newcastle are more frequent,” she said.

“It is wrong to put a charge on this area when there is deprivation and poor transport.”

The proposed charges of £3 per day are based on the existing charge at the Northern Rail car park at Morpeth Railway Station.
