DOING their best to prove opponents of resident parking schemescorrect, Bristol City Council has quietly slammed a 20 PERCENT INCREASE on to car parking charges at ashton Court without explanation.
A “small” car parking charge of £1 was first introduced therein 2012 despite considerable opposition. Now, within two years, comes the first (“small”?) INCREASE IN THE CHARGE, which can only be intended to raise revenue and fill the council’s coffers.
How long before similar increases are introduced for residents parking schemes then? Although any such price rise could surely only be for the purpose of improving air quality for our children and preventing commuters driving to work?
Perish the thought that our council would lie to us using green waffle and use residents car parking as a crude cash raising operation.
