Medway Council: scrap the parking charges at the Strand, Gillingham

This petition had 1,805 supporters


For 120 years, families have been able to enjoy free parking at the Strand Leisure Park in Gillingham.

But in July, Conservative-run Medway Council introduced £5.20 per day parking charges at the Strand, ready to hit visitors over the busy summer holiday period.

Just a few months after the parking charges came into force, the cafe has reported a 30% drop in takings, and income for the fun fair was also down on last year.

The Council aren't even investing the income from the parking charges in making improvements at the Strand - the money is being diverted to spend elsewhere.

Please support our campaign to persuade Medway Council to think again, and scrap these unfair parking charges at the Strand.
