PARKING in Finestrat will remain free during the daytime. The council approved a modification to the bylaw which regulates the public parking service at a council plenary meeting.
The modification includes a reform to adapt tariffs to public prices in accordance with municipal technical reports. As a result, the tariff for parking space overnight will be €33 + VAT, with a 15 per cent discount for the retired, the unemployed and under-35s.
“Municipal parking will continue being free for all residents and tourists who visit Finestrat. Only those people who take out a rental contract for night-time will be charged”, Mayor Juan Francisco Perez made clear.
The Mayor also maintained the council’s tariffs are “very competitive” for those people in Finestrat who need overnight parking for their vehicles.
Perez explained that one floor of the car-park would be reserved exclusively for the use of people who rent spaces “while the other will be available for the people who come to Finestrat to work, to run errands or to visit our old town.”
The municipal car-park, which opened its doors in 2007, is located just below the Casa de Cultura in Finestrat old town. It has 202 spaces on the ground floor and on an underground level, where resurfacing works are currently being finished off.
The council said the new tariffs would be applied once the works have been completed and at the end of the requisite 30-day time period following publication informing of the bylaw modification in the BOP Official Provincial Bulletin.
