Stop The Parking Stealth Tax

184 Signatures Goal: 500

Brentwood Borough Council has recently made major changes to parking in Brentwood and Shenfield. These changes have seen the price to park in some Council owned car parks rise by more than 117%. Previously residents could park for 1 hour in Brentwood for just 60p. That is now no longer the case! 


So here are the facts, the new parking charges introduced in February 2013 include the following


Removal of the 1 hour parking rate of 60p for residents

Introduction of £1.30 minimum rate, including those who stay for just 30 minutes

The replacement of parking machines purchased for over £24,000 in 2010.

44% of short stay parkers will be hit by this new stealth tax


Brentwood First believe that this wrong, which is why we have launched a petition to campaign against these changes. We believe that to support residents, local businesses and to encourage people to Brentwood the Council should reverse these changes and introduce 30 minutes free parking across Brentwood.
