Gloucestershire Echo - - WHERE I LIVE -

Chel­tenham Bor­ough Coun­cil is think­ing of in­tro­duc­ing park­ing charges for sev­eral small free car parks and the one af­fect­ing this area is Church Piece where the li­brary is sit­u­ated.

The idea is to in­tro­duce the charges to prevent people stay­ing for long pe­ri­ods of time and to use the money to maintain the area.

The pro­posed charge will be £1 for up to two hours.

The coun­cil say that they wish to know what people think about this pro­posal and you have un­til to­day to ex­press your opin­ion on these pro­pos­als.
