LECKHAMPTON & CHARLTON KINGS
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.
