NO to parking meters on Frant Road
As you are aware Croydon council have asked residents on Frant road about our opinion on having parking bays with meters on our road. However, even as they have stated, this will not ensure you have parking outside your own home, it will mean you face a yearly cost and if you have more than one car you could face anything up to £320. In addition to this everytime you have a guest they will also have to pay for the pleasure of your company.
This is an easy way to for the council to make money. We already have enough issues on our street with fly tipping and anti social behaviour. Lets recommend they deal with these issues first. It was only last Summer we were told a Primary school was going to be opened on our door step and now they want us to pay for the pleasure of parking on our own road.
There are other ways of dealing with traffic and parking that the council could explore, such as making it a one way road. However, they have not explored this avenue, perhaps as there is not much revenue for them to gain from this method. Hmmm...
Please sign this petition to say no to parking bays on Frant Road:
- You're not guaranteed parking outside your own home.
- You face a yearly cost which, due to inflation, is likely to keep on rising. (Just look at the congestion charge)
- If you have guests you will be paying £4 every time they pay you a visit! And that is £4 per guest.
- Let the council deal with the other more pressing issues that face our road such as fly tipping and overgrown trees which no one is accepting responsibility for.
