N H D C PROPOSAL FOR PARKING CHARGES AND PERMITS

Jean Mafham of the Danesbury Shop, and other traders in the 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. If you wish to make your views known, contact Simon Young, Planning Services, North Hertfordshire District Council, Gernon Road, Letchworth Garden City, Herts, SG6 3JF or email Click Here by 5pm on Friday 1 April....more
