Parking Consultation – brilliant response

Mr French thinks Council employees should pay for their parking, just like the rest of us. Marvellous idea!

Subject: Parking Charges Consultation

You say that parking costs in Herne Bay have not been increased since
2010 (which is incorrect) & thrown in the cost of enforcement – a look at
the balance sheet will show a profit not a loss arising from parking.

I think however that the greatest injustice here is the fact that all
of this is justified by officials who park their cars for free at Military Road – a site that is on the Park Ride route & a few minutes’ walk from the
centre of Canterbury. In days of “going green” how can this be
justified?

Why don’t your officials pay for on-street parking permits or pay for
the use of the  Military Road Car Park? You can all have your change ready every
morning for the ticket machine and have your nice uniformed ladies &
gentlemen ticket offending vehicles.

Perhaps we should begin a campaign to make the officials pay like
everyone else. I suggest that you firstly change the rules for your own parking
and you pay the going rate before putting up parking charges any higher.

Some of you may be essential car vehicle users but then plenty of other
people are as well.

I would appreciate your response justifying why you think you shouldn’t
have to pay but everyone else should – oh and pay more – yet again!
