Recommended Posts

Car parking charges are a hot topic in our town (Barrow-in-Furness UK)with the council proposing to raise the hourly rate from 80p to 90p. In our view this is too expensive and detrimental to trade in the town centre. We are trying to oppose this and need some comparison data to help our case. Would anyone like to share with us how much car parking is in there locality along with an approximation of the catchment area (ours is 70000). All help gratefully appreciated and apologies if too far off topic!

We will be getting our local budget report next week, which will have the figures in it. There is also a prolific amount of resident only parking charges taking place, as people are leaving the car parks, to park for free on the surrounding Roads.

These increase will bring in an extra

Thanks Neil, its not going to get any better with plans to ease the planning regulation on out of town shopping developments. How can we blame the general public for using the free parking they can offer rather than pay the misguided councils for the privilege of coming into their town centre?
