Thousands sign cheaper parking petition in Worthing

23rd August 2010 | Warning Signs

Thousands of residents and traders have signed a petition calling for cheaper parking charges in Worthing town centre.

It is hoped that the petition, which will be handed over to Worthing Borough Council in ten days, will boost trade in the town, the Worthing Herald reports.

Petition team organiser Steve Pratt, manager of the Guildbourne Grill, told the news provider: "Customers don't want to stay in the shops for long because they are anxious about the car parking charges, and sales are being lost because of this.

"Surely, by having prices so high, it is giving Worthing a bad name."

Mr Pratt admitted that on-street parking charges imposed by West Sussex County Council are a good source of revenue for the council, but claimed that there should be a "level of common sense" to parking charges.

As well as the plethora of on-street parking signs, Mr Pratt raised concerns over the cost of multi-storey parking prices.

Angry residents in Bracknell recently called for better parking signs on the Jennett's Park estate, reports the Bracknell Forest Standard.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800035500-ADNFCR
