No to carpark charges at South Stack/Ynys Lawd

The RSPB propose to charge a flat rate parking fee of £5 at South Stack/Ynys Lawd Anglesey. The RSPB is already supported at this location via purchases in the popular RSPB café and RSPB shop and via donations/new memberships at Ellin's Tower/Tŵr Elin.
The local photography scene is also thriving and local photographers provide free publicity for this iconic Anglesey location. Moreover, the carpark is the only option available to access not only the RSPB reserve but the coastal path, the lighthouse (managed by a separate trust) and the stone hut circles.
The charge also includes blue badge holders. Whilst it is reasonable that the RSPB need to raise funds, it is counterproductive to introduce a flat rate fee of £5 to park a car at a location that does not exclusively serve an RSPB reserve site.
South Stack/Ynys Lawd holds a special place in the hearts of both locals and visitors alike as a place of heritage, history and family memories. It is acknowledged as one of the jewels in the island's crown.
The charge takes no account of the island economy and is out of line with council car park charges which are at least staggered depending on duration parked.
This petition is not anti-RSPB and no abuse in the comments will be tolerated, it is just asking for a more reasonable and suitable approach based on site specific circumstances.
Thanks in advance for your support, diolch yn fawr.
