Bulk buy in advance and save money on parking by using the JustPark app

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Fri, 23/08/2019 - 11:07

Residents and commuters who regularly park in selected long-stay Cornwall Council car parks can benefit from reduced rates for regular use by using the JustPark app to bulk buy JustPark multi-use tickets to pay for parking sessions.

The JustPark app is a user-friendly, cashless payment system available on most smartphones.  Residents can download the JustPark app, set up and load a minimum of £48 on your account, then use it to pay for parking in a specific car park, or within a specific geographical area, at a heavily discounted rate.

For example, if you use your pre-loaded JustPark account in a Truro long stay car park, you’ll be able to park at the reduced rate of a season ticket so a 24 hour parking sessions costs as little as £2.26.  If you’ve set up Wherrytown car park in Penzance as your selected car park, a 24 hour parking session will cost 99p – a significant saving of over £7.50 on the usual cost.  If you choose Wharf car park in Bude as your selected car park, a 24 hour session paid for using your JustPark multi purchase account will cost £1.06 rather than £5.20.  

It’s especially cost effective if you use long-stay Cornwall Council car parks on a regular basis but you are one of those people who don’t park in your selected car park every day.  By bulk buying you only pay for the days you need to park.

Cornwall Council cabinet portfolio holder for transport Geoff Brown explains:  “We want to give our residents the opportunities to get the best deals when they regularly park in one of our long stay car parks.  As part of our moves to improve parking as we roll out the Council’s Positive Parking framework, we want to make the best use of innovation and technology.  JustPark multi use tickets can be bought and then used in one of our 120 long stay car parks.  It offers a convenient and hassle-free way for drivers to pay for parking as well as offering great value for money when you bulk buy.”

People who pay for parking via the ‘JustPark’ app can also extend their stay in the car park.  The app sends a reminder and gives the option to extend which encourages people to stay longer as they don’t have to rush back to their car when their car parking ticket is running out.

Geoff adds:  “If you don’t have a smartphone, you can still buy a one, three, six month or annual season ticket which also offer great value for money.”

The money generated from car parking charges helps fund car park maintenance and our roads – if we didn’t have income from car parks we would have to increase council tax to generate the same amount of funding to help maintain Cornwall's 7,300km road network.

JustPark passes can be purchased via the app or online, for more information visit www.cornwall.gov.uk/Justpark

Council congratulates and reassures Cornwall's students on GCSE results day

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 22/08/2019 - 10:25

It is several weeks since pens were downed following the last of this year's GCSE exams and students will be nervously checking their results this morning.

It can be a worrying time for many of the teenagers, hoping to get the grades they need for the next part of their lives.  This could include further study in college or starting an apprenticeship.

Sally Hawken, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Wellbeing said: “Congratulations to all those collecting their GCSE results this week – I hope the hard work has paid off and you have achieved the results you wanted. I wish you all best for whatever path you decide to follow.

“And as well as students, I’d like to give praise to teachers, staff, Governors, parents and carers for their role in helping young people fulfil their potential.”

This will be the second year that numerical grades have been used - after replacing the traditional A* to G grades as part of a general overhaul of the GCSE system in the last few years. 

Sally continued: “Collecting GCSE results can be an emotional time for teenagers and their families alike, however, young people now have access to more pathways than ever before.

“While young people now continue in learning or training until they are 18, this does not mean they need necessarily to stay on in a classroom. Many will choose to remain in full time education, such as a school sixth form or FE College, however they can also opt for work based learning such as an apprenticeship or take part in part time education or training if they are employed, self-employed or volunteering for 20 hours or more per week.

“For anyone who is unsure what to do next, they can contact the National Careers Service which offers free and impartial advice and access to a range of online tools, including skills tests, course search, job search advice and personalised help from careers advisers.”

The National Careers Service can be contacted in confidence by telephone on a dedicated careers helpline 0800 100 900, via web chat and email by searching online for the National Careers Service.
