We, the businesses, residents and visitors to Sudbury petition that Babergh District Council keep the 3 hours free parking in all their car parks in Sudbury and do not increase the charges for parking in the long stay car park.

Keeping three hours free parking in Sudbury is crucial to the survival of many businesses in Sudbury and this was shown as the main issue raised by the businesses as the “most important factor to the success of their business in the future” in a survey carried out by Sudbury Town Centre in January 2014. Another survey carried out by the Sudbury Town Team and Gainsborough's House of visitors and residents who visited the town centre which came out in June 2015 showed that 31.7% came into Sudbury because of the free parking and Government policy on High Streets and Town Centres: clearly reinforces the prohibition against parking being used to generate profit.

    Free parking encourages drivers to shop in town as opposed to visiting out of town shopping centres .

    The council should keep parking free. Parking charges would probably reduce the number of shoppers to the town & result in more small independent business closures. They should also significantly reduce the business rates to attract more businesses & lessen the number of charity shops.

    free parking is the something that Sudbury has got that Bury, Ipswich & Colchester have not. charging for Parking in Sudbury will certainly lead to less people visiting an spending money in the town.
