Call on Tesco Hove NOT to remove their 2 hours free parking and save George Street.

This petition had 298 supporters

George Street, and the surrounding shops at Blatchington and Church Roads, provide a vital shopping destination and community hub for thousands of residents of Hove and beyond. Parking is extremely difficult to find, and expensive if you do manage to get a space. The two hours free parking that Tesco have offered to the community since 2009 has been a life line to the traders and the residents.

If Tesco restrict the free parking to 30 mins (unless you spend £5) this will not be enough time get to George Street and fit in even one purchase, let alone do a proper shop, get to the bank and have a coffee. The number of visitors to George Street will drop dramatically and many of the traders will be in jeopardy. This could mean the beginning of the end for our much loved shops on George Street.
