Is it time to give up on night time car parking charges in South Lakes?
That’s the question Lakes Councillor Ben Berry is putting to the man in charge of the policy at a full Council meeting next week.
The policy of night time charging was fiercely opposed by businesses, volunteer groups and the Conservative opposition on South Lakeland District Council when it was steam rolled through in February 2011.
Ben claims that the policy has failed to raise any money and has only lead to more bad feeling towards the Council from residents and so should now be scrapped.
Commenting he said “Most of these Councillors live in a different world. Night time parking charges were a bad idea when they were brought them in and they are a bad idea now. My message to the Council is lets get rid.”
