Ridicu­lous park­ing charges at cen­tre

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

I won­der if Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil (ABC) could ex­plain to me why they have in­creased the charges for the Stour Cen­tre car park by 90% from 80p to £1.50 for any stay up to two hours. We use the car park ev­ery week for a 30-minute swim­ming les­son so this charge in­crease is ridicu­lous, as we are us­ing the car park for around 50 min­utes in to­tal.

Is ABC try­ing to pe­nalise the peo­ple of Ash­ford for keep­ing them­selves and their chil­dren healthy? Could they not con­sider putting in the same charges as the other car parks in Ash­ford? Why pe­nalise the users of the Stour Cen­tre? Stuart Robert­son Kingsnorth
