Stop Waitrose fining customers for parking in the village car park.

This petition had 477 supporters

Waitrose Car Park in Longfield was, from what we understand, formerly the village car park that was supposed to remain free to park in. However, recently Waitrose have added an hour and a half parking restriction incurring a £75 fee if you over stay your welcome. This is not enough time for most local people to run day to day errands such as doctors, dentists, opticians, hairdressing, beauty appointments and general shopping in the village. We feel 4 hours free parking would be a more sensible amount of time for most people but still stopping people parking there to commute into London on a daily basis.

I have a business in Longfield and have already lost clients who can't park anywhere in the village. I'm afraid this will affect Longfield's trade long term.
