Club News Traffic management and car parking – the feedback
Northampton Saints thanks all the supporters who gave the club their feedback about the Northamptonshire County Council traffic management scheme implemented after last Saturday’s game against Exeter.
Over a hundred supporters have taken the time to voice their opinions through the Saints’ social media channels or through the club’s website, and all written feedback will be passed on to the County Council as part of the de-briefing process.
The County Council is committed to providing traffic management on each match day where there are fixture clashes between the Saints and either Northampton Town or Coventry City. The Saints management will be working closely with the County Council ahead of the any upcoming clashes.
Last season the Saints paid for its own post-match traffic management scheme. A good number of lessons were learned, and the club’s management will be implementing this traffic scheme at selected fixtures in 2013/14.
The club has also received a number of queries about the Claret Car Park. The Claret Car Park is owned by the Homes and Communities Agency, with the Saints, Northampton Town and Northampton Borough Council all able to open it under licence.
Whichever of these three bodies that opens the Claret Car Park also undertakes the operating costs and chooses what charge to impose. Last Saturday the Claret Car Park was opened and operated by Northampton Borough Council, who chose to open the Car Park for free.
This will not be the case for every match this season; when there are no fixture clashes the Saints will have the option to open the Claret Car Park, at which point the club will take on the operating costs and will charge an entry fee to cover them.
