Jean Mafham of the Danesbury Shop, and other traders in Knebworth Village, are hopping mad about proposals to bring in car park charges in the St. Martin's Road Car Park. Jean has already presented a petition with 400 signatures on it to North Herts. District Council. Her argument is that traders and employees will be stuck for parking, and trade in the village will drop off. North Herts District Council maintain that the charges will mean increased turnover in the car park giving more parking to those wishing to use the shops and businesses in the village. Charges will be applicable on Mondays to Saturdays from 9am - 6pm: 20p up to 30 minutes, 50p up to one hour, £1 up to two hours, £2 up to 3 hours and £4 up to 4 hours, with a maximum stay of 4 hours.

I would favour a resident parking scheme. Having a 3 month baby and having to park hundreds of meters away from our house is a nightmare with shopping etc. I do not mind doing it if neighbours are parked near our house but when you have people who our just using the street for free parking when there are using the train it gets a little more frustrating!!!

By making car park charges it's only going to cause more people to park in our streets causing more congestion and troublesome parking and ruining the pleasure of living in such a lovely area!!!

I have heard there is a proposal by NHDC to implement charges for parking in the St Martin's Rd car park (behind the Co-Op) and to start a Residents Only parking permit scheme in roads near the village centre. Does anyone know about these schemes? Presumably, parking charges for the St Martin's Road car park are to prevent long stay parkers. If that is the case, then simply allow parking for a maximum period of two hours, after which the vehicle must be moved and not be able to return for another two hours. Offenders to receive a fine of £25.00.
