Parking is a big problem for students who attend Barnsley college, as the college does not have enough car parking spaces for students to park in. This requires students to pay for parking in other car parks (such as courthouse car park). The Car parking issue is commonly brought up in course panel meetings by students who feel that its unfair that they come from different area's (such as Wakefield, Doncaster, Sheffield and Rotherham) and have to pay extensive for parking to have a high level learning experience (in which they are entitled to). At least the council could give students a way of supporting their parking needs.
Is it possible the council could work with the college to create a parking pass, which gives students unlimited parking at car parks (such as courthouse) for a one time fee of £50? Where the students can only use this during term time?
Surely the council will be able to support students who can not afford to pay for parking, due to the many economical struggles that students face.
A student who commutes to learn in this great town, who adds to the towns economy and who is the next academic generation, surely should undoubtedly be entitled to a reduction fee in parking.
