Business Permits & Parking Restrictions on Oakwood Hill Industrial Estate
Many businesses in Oakwood Hill Industrial Estate have been severely affected by the parking conditions in the area. Most notably, by the Pay and Display parking on Oakwood Hill main road, but mostly with the yellow lines and business permits which have been enforced on the industrial estate itself. It is no secret that the massive over selling of the permits in relation to the number of spaces available has been extremely detrimental.
We have been writing to the relevant authorities and specifically asking them to reconsider the car park at the end of the road, which costs £10 per day. Because of this charge, the car park is virtually empty most days. We have been campaigning for the people who work in the immediate vicinity and who have already paid for their permits but can rarely find a space. We feel that they should be allowed to use this car park as an overflow and possibly even for a nominal (£2?) fee instead of the normal £10 per day. We honestly feel that this would be beneficial to all parties, including the authorities who would see revenues boosted.
We have already been in touch with our local Councillor, who has assured us he will put forward our points to the relevant committee when he is able to. We need to try and put a little bit of pressure on whoever can help, to give this important matter some real consideration.
Therefore, we have decided to start this petition which we would invite you all to sign it and add any supporting comments if you wish to.
Please do not share this petition on Facebook or Twitter or send it on to any other parties.
