When does £345,000 Car Park not cost £345,000

When does £345,000 Car Park not cost £345,000, when it’s in Stoke on Trent of course.

In March 2013 Officers at Stoke on Trent agreed to a management scheme for the former Bus Station in Hanley.

The proposed Costs of Scheme

cost of temp car park

The Tempoary Car Park is being advertised by Cllr Ruth Rosenau, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning and Transportation as revenue generating, but how long will it take to cover the initial costs?

In a FOI response from Councillor Officers they say the predicted income for the 170 space car park based on other City Centres car parks is £140,000 to £190,000.  so the scheme will pay for it self with one year.

The council are somehow estimating the cost of the temporary car park at £130,000 ( see chart above ) the cost of demolishing the Birch Street Car Park appear to be ignored
