REVERSE THE DECISION TO IMPLEMENT PARKING CHARGES AT ASCOT HIGH STREET CAR PARK
The car park on Ascot High Street is used by a variety of individuals for many purposes. These range from dog walkers using the local park, employees at local businesses and customers of local businesses.
We appreciate that the council may need the extra revenue, but this car park has always been a free car park, and it is a pity that local residents, employees and other visitors will now have to pay the charges being implemented by the council later this month. This affects many people, especially employees who have not had this cost previously as well as local businesses, as customers could potentially go elsewhere. People are likely to park on nearby roads creating issues for those living in the nearby area. Additionally, whilst some businesses received notification of this development, other businesses have not received any advance information regarding this new charge. Better communication of these plans would have been appreciated.Our request is that the local council reverse the decision to start charging for Ascot High Street car park due to the effect it will have on locals and employees.
