Over 12,000 residents join Minster Badge scheme

Nearly 12,200 residents have joined the City of York Council Minster Badge scheme almost two years after it was introduced in September 2014.

The Minster Badge allows York residents to park for free or at a reduced rate in council car parks and is valid for two years.

Cllr Ian Gillies, Executive Member for Transport and Planning at City of York Council, said: “Over 12,000 residents have already taken advantage of the Minster Badge scheme which enables them to park in council car parks at a reduced rate. In order to keep enjoying these benefits badge holders need to ensure that they have an up to date badge.”

A valid Minster Badge allows York residents to park at a reduced rate in council car parks during the day and for free on evenings. Residents who join the scheme will get their money back in just five evening visits a year or four ‘five’ hour stays in a long-term car park. Minster Badges are valid for two years and cost £20.
