.
For years, Hertford residents who rely on council run car parks have faced a parking postcode lottery. Some are issued residents’ permits for only £36 a year, while others are forced to buy daily tickets costing up to £1,400 a year.
.
Now, East Herts Council wants to introduce evening car park charges in Hertford (£1 from 4-10pm, except all day tickets), costing residents and others up to £260 A YEAR.
.
The changes are proposed for Ware and Bishops Stortford too and they are running a publicconsultation until 30thMay to gather public views. We need to act NOW!
.
Evening car park charges would be BAD for visitors, BAD for local businesses who rely on evening trade and even WORSE for residents.
.
If you care about the rights of local people in Hertfordshire, please sign this petition to show that we have a voice.
.
SIGN THIS PETITION IF YOU WANT EAST HERTS COUNCIL TO SCRAP EVENING CAR PARK CHARGES AND PROVIDE FAIR PARKING FOR ALL.

    I have a business in Parliament Square, I got ticket many many time. Sometimes you are only 2 minute late (Allow 30 minutes). I only parked 32 minutes, it looks like they are waiting to give the ticket, it's bad for business, even for my customer. They can't find the parking, have to park the double yellow line, like me sometime. Well I have just got a ticket 2 days ago which is 8pm at night and it's very quiet, the road is very quiet. I haven't block anybody way, just a few minutes and they give the ticket right away. Not enough parking, it would be better if the council allow parking double yellow line which isn't blocking anybody.
