PLEEEASE respond to this consultation if you think the parking charges are wrong - as most people seem to. The council say they haven't had a huge response so far but everyone I've spoken to over the last couple of months has been disgusted by the idea.
There's a simple form on http://www.eastherts.gov.uk/ehparkingchanges
, or you can sign my petition against the charges at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/fairparkingforall
The only downside is for in-town residents, but if you choose to live within a city/town centre in a place without dedicated parking then it is always going to be an issue and is surely something that one takes into account when choosing to live in the centre (as I have done previously).
Yes Robbo it is a nightmare for in-town residents, as people like me have bought properties with the knowledge that we would be able to park for free overnight in Gascoyne Way car park, but now these proposals have come in without any thought for us. The annoying thing is most residents would be happy to pay for permits if the council would issue them (as they do in other Hertford car parks) but they have so far refused.
TOWN CENTRE RESIDENTS - please message me if you want to see residents' permits introduced in the car parks and I'll send you a joint statement to sign, which I'm submitting as part of the consultation.
