Freeze on Car Park Charges

Today's Tenbury Advertiser carries an article about the Freezing of the Tenbury Car Parking charges for the next year. (Originally anounced here on Tuesday, 2 December 2008.)

It also claims that Malvern Hills District Council raises £200,000 from Car Parking Charges. What is doesn't say is that the Car Park at Tenbury only raises £18,000 per year, and much of the money raised goes in administration and maintenance costs running the ticketing and cash collection service.

I suggest making the car park free to use, but charge to park in the street.

That way, congestion in the town is reduced, and the empty car park will get some use.
