Reverse the parking permits for UWTSD's campuses!

This petition had 1,621 supporters

Just over a week before returning to university, students and lecturers alike were sent emails stating that you now have to pay £160 to drive and leave your car on campus, £200 if you live on campus, where lectures is more again! 

The cost of studying and funding ourselves throughout is enough as it is and now there is extra cost being added on top. This will only stop students attending lectures, or even parking their cars in surrounding areas! Which will more than likely annoy surrounding residents living by all the campuses! 

A high number of mature and distance students travel into university on a daily basis. Buses and trains do not run on a daily basis for students to get to certain university's (especially Lampeter). 

Then again, if we were to pay this large sum of money are we even going to be guaranteed a space on the day, with the huge volume of people driving in! Some students are only in for the day each week so £160 for the year is pretty steep for some full-time courses being over just a day! 

This is going to put students in more debt than they already are in! A discussion about this is necessary. If a permit was to happen an action to make it cheaper would be preferred. Why are students being treated like cash cows when universities already know they struggle.
