Fight Car Parking Fees in Urmston

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


Car parking fees are going to be introduced in Urmston.  Namely the council car park on the corner of Atkinson Road and also the car park on Manor Avenue.

 

Here are the proposed charges:

 

30 mins - 70p

2 hours - £1.50

3 hours - £2.50

4 hours - £3.50

All day - £7

 

For people who work in Urmston that's a further £35 per week we will have to find just to come to work.  This is excessive.  We can park for less in Manchester city centre!

 

This is going to have a huge impact on businesses in Urmston.  There are lots of new businesses which have just started up and need every bit of help available.  We don't need Trafford Council enforcing these charges on everyone, causing them to go elsewhere due to lack of parking or high charges.  Small businesses are finding it hard enough, without us having to worry further about our customers being charged before they even get to our shops.

 

The council will benefit by £702,000 just from this one increase.  We the businesses are likely to lose our livelihood.

 

Please sign this petition to show you are completely against this latest mad idea enforced on the Urmston community.
