A £2 an hour charge for car parking is to be introduced in Southwark Park from 1 April this year.
Southwark Council hopes to raise £200,000 a year by introducing car parking charges in the borough’s open spaces.
There are 90 car parking spaces in Southwark Park. At present, car parking is free but there is a four-hour time limit.
The new parking charge will be payable by phone, text or app.
As part of the same package of measures, the council is planning to spend £28,000 on resurfacing and drainage works at Southwark Park, as well as installing new signage to advise motorists of the charges and how to pay.
