Right to park for free at Henley Beach

This petition had 8,650 supporters

As of the 14th of August, the Charles Sturt City Council are charging $2 an hour/50c per 15 minutes for parking at Henley Beach ( Henley Beach has become one of Adelaide's most popular beaches and it's sickening to see it being turned into a Westfield Shopping Centre or the Adelaide CBD. For most, if not all, Henley Beach is a place for recreation, fun for families alike and youth, peace, relaxation, sports and community enjoyment. One of Australia's natural main attractions is being turned into a money-making profit. No part of it's beauty should be sectioned for money. As a result, Henley Beach's popularity will go down and so will local businesses as locals and tourists turn their attention elsewhere in summer months. Something as beautiful as the Henley Beach area should not be ruined because of the Councils' greed in raising revenue. Henley Beach has become home to many and this fantastic area will be jeopardised if nothing is done.

By signing the petition, you are supporting the removal of parking meters at Henley Beach and therefore, free parking at Henley Beach all year round. Your signature and support can make a difference.
