Public opinion ignored as government proposes measures that make managing private parking unworkable
The government’s response to a recent public consultation has caused serious concerns that the drastic reduction in the deterrent effect of parking charges on private land will force legitimate parking operators out, allowing the ‘cowboys’ to once again ride into town.
