Since early August, SDN has promoted under our “Consultation” tab on this website “Shropshire Council Parking Strategy”. With time running out for you to have your say, SDN feels the need to highlight a few points.
- Some car parks will stay open for longer and would make applying for tickets and permits easier.
- Are you happy about the proposed increases in charges to both on-street and town centre car parks?
- Whist hourly rates in the main commuter car parks at Frankwell and Abbey Foregate are slightly reduced, it means those currently parking for 10 hours for as little as £1,80 could face daily rates upwards of £20!
What impact will this have on you? Are the increases acceptable for you and your family? Do you think people will decide not to park in the town but use neighbouring residential areas? If so would this impact on you? (People already park in residential areas and is already a problem)
Do you think the proposals will mean people will stop shopping and visiting Shrewsbury? If so what impact will that have on businesses and your ability to shop locally? SDN can pose many questions.
We would encourage you to take part in Shropshire Council’s Parking Strategy before the deadline of Tuesday 17th October 2017
