Pay for parking in StCyp

Post by BT » Thu 20 Apr 2017 21:18

Hi, I read a post about this on Facebook a few weeks ago, can't find it now. I don't remember who posted it.

The post noted that residents would be able to purchase a monthly ticket for €10. Has anyone done this yet? If yes does the ticket show the Reg No or is it tied to the address of the property?

Our issue is that whilst we own a property we don't own a car. We rent cars at the airport, as there are 5 owners we could rent 8 times during the 3 months the charge applies.

Any advise should be appreciated.

Regards

I was told this weekend that the council will be having a meeting this week to rethink charges. I don't know about the weekly rate as they didn't mention it, but the capitainerie told me that at the moment the agreed charge will be 30 euros per day! A meeting has been called by the council and several others who were given no say in the price, which will hopefully be modified. Local businesses and residents weren't informed either. It is likely to spread to the other resorts so even if you don't often go to St Cyp, the situation is worth keeping an eye on.

As far as I know, the ticket machines aren't in use yet. More info should be available once the tariffs have been finalized.

What's the betting that the outraged locals vandalise the meters in protest, just as they did with the speed cameras? A coin covered in superglue would do it easily and the culprits would be unlikely to get caught. Watch this space.

Update: Pay for parking in St Cyprien

Post by BT » Thu 11 May 2017 23:00

Hi,

This following has been taken from a message received from a resident in St Cyp.

1. Per the Mairie in order to get the pass you will need to have proof of residence and also provide the Reg No of the vehicle which is registered in St Cyp.

2. It was pointed out that owners who rent a vehicle at the airport would not be able to apply for the 3 month pass, the lady in the Mairie sympathises however those are the rules.

3. Prices have not yet been published however the information pack is being sent out in the next couple of weeks.

If anyone has more up to date information please post it.

Regards

BT

Pay for parking in St Cyp

Hi,

Latest update. The good news is that despite the markings & the installation of the ticket machine it has been decided that there will not be "Pay of Parking" in the Centre Commercial in St Cyp. All but 1 of the shop keepers were against it.

Still no word of the cost of parking in other areas. If anyone knows please post.

Regards

car park charges

Post by gleber » Sat 10 Jun 2017 20:45

Heard today that the 'payant' on spaces has been blacked out and the sign removed at the centre commercial Cappelans although the pay machines are still there. Round 1 to the shopkeepers.

Details of the all charges and and a map of the zones (including the form to apply for a residents form - but only if the car is registered in 66) are at: http://www.saint-cyprien.com/pgs/news2.php?id=152

Parking meters in St Cyp

Post by dorothyr » Fri 23 Jun 2017 12:54

Any News yet? We came back to England on 11th June and it looked as though the parking meters were set to be used. We have owned a house in St Cyprien for 15 years but drive our English car when we go to France. We have the Taxe Foncier, the Taxe D'Habitation and the facture EDF de moins de 3 mois but our car is registered in the UK. Any advice please. (Although really hoping this is all a "French moment" and like many events advertised, just does not go ahead).

This in today's Independent
http://www.lindependant.fr/2017/06/23/f ... [Zone_info]

To be fair, as they say, Saint Cyp is the last coastal resort to become 'payant' And there are still plenty of places that are free if you know where they are. :lol:

Just read that there was a meeting on Friday and that resodence secondaire owners now get a prefential rate of 20 euros a month to beable to park. Residents pay 10 euros a month. People who work in St Cyprien( and are not resident or an owner) on the other hand pay full whack or have to find a free space somewhere .

Please can you tell me where you found the details of the preferential rate for residence secondaire owners. I can find nothing about that; only residents and professionals being able to claim the discounted monthly rate of €10 on production of suitable identity and carte grise http://www.saint-cyprien.com/glass_admi ... 12%20p.pdf

Hi. It is on St Cyprien plage Facebook page. There is a meeting on the 30th June and this what is proposed. Owners of residence secondaire will get a preferential rate of 20 euros. A lot are complaining because residents only pay 10 euros so they are asking people to.go and give their point of view.
