Parishioners will be aware that Cheltenham Borough Council (CBC) are planning to sell Idsall Drive Car Park. The Parish Council is working with CBC to establish if the parish council may be able to purchase the car park, rather than it being sold privately and potentially turned into housing.
The car park is located off the High Street by the Prestbury War memorial, has ten spaces (currently free of charge) and is open 24 hours a day. Some parishioners may recall that the parish council paid a significant contribution towards the original purchase of the car park by Tewkesbury Borough Council back in 1986.
To purchase the car park would clearly come at a cost to Prestbury Parish Council. If a price could be agreed this would have to be funded by using parish council reserves and/or taking out a loan.
This would be a significant financial commitment for the parish.
