Car park charges go up – Lib Dem call for cut ignored

February 23, 2018 4:26 PM

Heath's Nursery Car ParkConservative councillors on SHDC have voted to increase car parking charges again.

Your Lib Dem councillors opposed the move and called for a cut in car parking charges by 10%, with a target to reduce charges by 50% by 2022/23.

These cuts were fully costed - the income shortfall would be covered by the Economic Regeneration Projects reserve.

But Tory councillors refused to debate the proposal and voted as a bloc to reject it, without giving any reason why.

We believe residents and local businesses deserve better from their District Council.
