Car Parking Charges at Alnmouth

Northern have announced they intend to introduce car parking charges at Alnmouth. SENRUG believes that paying to park the car is a deterrent to travelling by train, and the £1.50 charge (but note that at Morpeth, the charge was soon increased yet further shortly after its introduction) adds 11% to the cost of a standard single ticket to Newcastle. Yet the situation is complex, as charges already apply to the Council’s car park the other side of the station. See SENRUG’s response here which also raises a few issues with the current charging arrangement at Morpeth.
