(i) That new tariff points be introduced in Hurst Road Car Park and, to allow for this, the current latter tariff points be increased as set out in the report.
(ii) That the name of Hurst Road Car Park be changed to ‘The Pavilions Car Park’.
The reasons for recommending the change of name:

II. Link the two entities together helps with finding the facilities.
III. Very little effort for a perceived larger improvement

III. Parking tickets being passed from one customer to another
IV. To support The Pavilions in the Park, particularly with the introduction of two new gyms into the town
