Colin Hewitt started this petition

New car parking charges have come into force for Lancaster and Morecambe Car Parks from the 1st April 22.

30mins £1, 1hr £2, 3hr £4, 9hr, £9, 24hr £12.

These charges will not be helpful and will only serve to drive people away from shopping or spending leisure time in Lancaster at the expense of the shops and leisure industries who are trying to come from the damage caused by the pandemic.

The council also states that one of the reasons for the increase is that we are all facing a climate emergency and by changing people’s travel habits away from private car journeys to more sustainable forms of travel will help reduce CO2 emissions and have a positive impact in air quality.
This would be fine if the county had decent public transport to make the change.

Therefore I am asking people to sign this petition to show the disgust that local residents feel regarding the charges.  
update:

Looks like 1st May they are now going to be changing overnight parking to £4 from 6pm to 8am
St Lenordgates Car Park will now be
£5 for 5hrs all day to help the arts and culture sector still no help though for the local business that operate during the  hours not listed and when most people use the town centre.
