SAY NO TO PRICE INCREASE FOR PARKING
Hucknall & Ashfield Independent Councillors are trying to increase car parking charges at Yorke Street & Piggins Croft car parks.
The main changes to Hucknall include:-
Up to 4 hours: from £1.50 to £2
Over 4 hours: from £2 to £4
Hucknall Labour Councillors, Lauren Mitchell & Keir Morrison, have called on the Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Streets, Parks & Town Centres, Councillor David Martin, to SCRAP these proposals...
Cllr Lauren Mitchell said: "This is not only unfair on residents but would be bad for local businesses. We want to encourage people to spend time in the District, not put them off by doubling parking prices".
Cllr Keir Morrison added: "The car parking consultation has been confusing and beurocratic from the start. This doesnt take into account staff who rely on these car parks who work in stores located to the town centre who will be disproportionately affected".
Let Cllr Martin know you are against the increase in charges by contacting him at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also have your say by filling in the consultation form (deadline 9th March) here.
