charlotte lathbury started this petition to Waitrose Harrow Weald branch

Waitrose has proposed to implement a 2 hour time limit on the use of their car park. This change will significantly affect our local high street as users of the car park, who are also Waitrose customers, will be limited as to the time that they can spend supporting the local high street businesses. 

Customers of hair salons will be amongst those impacted the most by this proposed change, as 2 hours is not enough time to accommodate the average salon service. 

The availability of easy parking facilities has been a huge and direct factor of enabling hair salons to attract and accommodate customers, without fear of parking fines. 

If the parking restriction is implemented by Waitrose, salons and other high street businesses alike will suffer.

Waitrose owns a large car park, which can easily accommodate regular use from people visiting the area (who are also customers of this Waitrose branch), and as a large corporation they surely have a responsibility to the local community. 

This proposed decision needs to be prevented by the management of Waitrose, or it will come at great cost to the local community in a time when high street businesses are finding times increasingly tough to survive, without added pressures.

Our high street is small but busy, and it serves a lot of people who have done, and are doing, their part to support our community- and it is these people who will be directly affected.
