On Friday 27th June businesses along the Goring Road Car Park received a piece of paper stating:

"Recently, local residents have been in touch with us over the condition of the Goring Road car park. Having taken the opportunity to fully assess it, we have decided to temporarily close the car park while a decision is made about its future.

The funds for resurfacing this car park have been identified in our annual budget and we are working to bring the site up the priority list. Additionally, we're considering further options for the site's future, which may include sale - more information will be available in due course.

Fencing will be put up this afternoon around the section of the car park that we own (access to the homes and businesses will, of course, be maintained). There are free on-street parking spaces as well as lay-bys nearby which should maintain parking access for residents, businesses and visitors alike."

We believe that the car park can remain open whilst they are deciding on it's fate. The closure of the car park was without warning and has already had a dramatic effect on businesses. The free street parking simply cannot cope with the amount of people trying to access it. The Goring Road Car Park was in constant use and it is such a shame that the Council have not realised this.

Support local business by signing the petition!

Thank you.
