Local Residents’ Associations and residents are concerned about the loss of 1-hour parking in Brighton Road, Coulsdon. They believe that this proposal could mean more shops closing with less choice for residents.
The Council is proposing to reduce the current 60 minutes that people can park for free to just 30 minutes. Local people have already fought this on previous occasions and managed to get this overturned due to public pressure.
A campaigner says,
“This will affect the traders and shoppers. It is a huge blow after getting at least some of the Lion Green Road car park reinstated. The problems which the closure of the car park has caused showed how important parking is to the town.
Thank goodness they have at least temporarily, reopened the car park.
We need you to object again this time – details of how to and a standard letter are provided below.
There is now only a few more days to object but if you haven’t done so already.”
