Local Parking. UKIP will:
– introduce 30 minutes FREE parking at local shops.
– restore cash payment machines for parking.
– reduce hourly charges.
– review parking restrictions near places of workship.
– abolish hospital car parking charges.
Protests against local parking charges have been going on for years but little has changed as parking revenue and fines are considered a "cash cow" by the council. These charges are ruining local businesses and are a major source of anger and resentment in the community. The Barnet council charges and parking restrictions are now out of control and the needs and wishes of local people have been ignored.
