In Wotton under Edge we struggle with parking as it is. Many parking spots are limited by time  - parking for 1 hour, 3 hours or 23 hours. 

Residents should be allowed to park anywhere without these limitations. (I have to move my car from one car park to another in order not to be charged by traffic warden). I believe many of WUE residents do the same.

We are going through very difficult times at the moment due to COVID 19. Many people self-isolate themselves because they are vulnerable, afraid of the virus or they are just doing everything under the sun to stay safe. I can't imagine during these difficult times when people are worried about health and jobs, people being stressed about re-parking their cars due to time limitations.

On many days people have to queue for few hours outside the shops and pharmacy - how they are supposed to return to the car within an hour if parking on the Long Street... People self-isolate themselves as they have symptoms - how they are supposed to re-park their cars from one car park to another....

I do understand it is good to keep an eye on parking within the town - watch out for illegal parking and blocking essential ways/road, but I think it is unnecessary to charge people for trying to be safe, trying to get essential things, or isolating themselves.

It is challenging to survive during these hard times as it is. Why adding extra stress to people's lives?

Therefore we, people of WUE, demand parking charge tickets to be used only for dangerous and illegal parking. Not for parking over the time limit.
