    Title translated by Google ... Cancels: higher parking rates at Mont-Saint-Michel

    From the news article.. the higher rate being charged for the new aire of € 20.80 has been challenged and will revert to the old charge.. €12.50 from 1st Jan 2016

    Google translated ...

    The Administrative Court of Caen found that the increase in tariffs applied in 2013 had not been entered in the forms. The rates thus return to their 2012 level from 1 January 2016.

    The Administrative Court of Caen's judgment. Higher parking rates at Mont-Saint-Michel is canceled by a judgment of the Caen Administrative Court issued November 17, 2015 (click here to read the text of the judgment). As we imagined in a paper published on our website in June 2015 (click here to view), the Norman administrative court considered that the 48% increase (registered on 1 January 2013) would be canceled from from 1 January 2016.

    Price from 1 January 2013: € 20.80, the price of which must pay motorhomes on the official car park of Mont-Saint-Michel, they stay there an hour or a maximum of 24 hours.
    2012 Price: € 12.50 per day per camper (for vehicles less than 6 m long).

    The Administrative Court of Caen found that cetteaugmentation constituted a "substantial change in the public service delegation contract concluded between the Joint Association of the Bay of Mont Saint Michel and the Parks Company and smugglers of Mont-Saint-Michel". This change in the pricing conditions could therefore not be recorded by a simple amendment to the contract.

    For those who have parked at Mont-Saint-Michel since 1 January 2013, note that this ruling is not retroactive. Therefore impossible to obtain reimbursement of a ticket already purchased.



    The Judgement http://www.lemondeducampingcar.fr/a...ministratif-de-caen-pourrait-les-annuler.html

    Parking fees at Mont-Saint-Michel suffered a dramatic increase since 2013, confirmed on 1 January 2015. This inflation follows the redevelopment of parking and shuttles. Some traders and the town hall of Mont Saint-Michel filed a petition for annulment with the Administrative Court of Caen. At the opening of the hearing, May 28, 2015, the public rapporteur court itself sought annulment.

    € 20.80. This is the price asked campers to park for 24 hours on the official car of Mont Saint-Michel. A tidy sum, which angers many motorhome (see our article here). Motorists must themselves pay a fee of 12.50 to park on the car park managed by Veolia Transdev society, against 8.50 in 2012. A 40% increase, according to an article on the website Normandie-News May 29, 2015.

    The tariffs to Justice
    The Administrative Court of Caen was hearing an application to quash the rates of new car parks, in force since 3 June 2013. The hearing began May 28, 2015, and the judgment should be made on or about June 15 Justice in this action is rooted in the discontent of the municipality of Mont-Saint-Michel and traders located at parking lots (and customers that are paying the same price as if they were traveling on Mount itself) .

    The public supported the rapporteur cancellation
    In an article in figaro.fr (29 May 2015), we learn that the rapporteur of the Administrative Court of Caen, François-Joseph Revel, was supportive to the cancellation:

    "The numbers seem to speak for themselves," said Franz Joseph Revel. The magistrate noted in particular an increase of 48% for campers, 39% of the bus between Pontorson Station and Mont, and 64% of the annual subscription to the parking lot. This new schedule represents two million in "additional revenue to the delegate."

    Towards a new pricing?
    But such an increase, according to the magistrate, was the subject of a simple addendum to the management contract parking and shuttles to the Veolia Transdev society. According to Francis Joseph Revel, such an increase is "a substantial modification of the contract." The lawyer for the company, quoted in an article by France 3 Basse-Normandie, retorts that "today the contract is not economically viable." The question is whether the Caen Administrative Court confirms the conclusions of the rapporteur, and whether any future negotiations really will affect the rates for campers.

    Free aire just up the road at Carrefour in Pontorson and a regular bus from the station (3€) that will drop you at the "gate" to the Mont.
