Raise the car parking limit! Save Flicks Hair Studio

This petition had 65 supporters

At Flicks hair studio Tovil, we have a car park straight opposite which many of the other shops along side us also use. Especially people using the post office. 
However, it has a 2 hour limit which for many people it is long enough if you are just quickly popping into the shop, or even with us to have a cut & blow-dry or if your a gent and just want a trim. But the problem we are having is that it's impossible to carry out a colouring service in 2 hours. Therefore our clients are at risk of getting a ticket. We do/did have a parking permit which we placed in our clients car when having a colouring service to say that they are in flicks enabling them to stay longer than 2 hours, but that has now all of a sudden stopped working. Depending on what colour and the length of the clients hair it can take 30 mins to 1 hour 30 mins to apply. Then a further 35 mins to develop, we then have to wash it off, tone it & cut and blow-dry it. No matter how short your hair is or if its just a basic colour you still need the max 35 mins to develop especially in the colder months! We are a small salon like many of the businesses around here and we have very reasonable prices, its then not fair on our clients to have to pay a parking fine on top of that! 
Either put a pay meter in allowing 2 hours free but after that you have to pay, or to allow us to have our parking permit back. Support small businesses!
