'£4 to Pay - No Way' To The Proposed Parking Charge In Wirral Country Parks

Unfortunately we lost this campaign.

'£4 to Pay - No Way'   To The  Proposed Parking Charge In Wirral Country Parks

Please re-think this and allow the country parks to be enjoyed by all and not just those who can, or who are willing to afford it.

Why is this important?

Wirral Council Cabinet are looking at bringing in more money from car parking charges at larger shopping centres and in our country parks and promenades.
We say these will damage our local shops and £4 for any time spent in our country park is shocking.
It will also push car parking up Ferry Road which is narrow and will become an unmanageable and dangerous one lane to traffic.

Eastham Country Park, Birkenhead

Reasons for signing

  • I am a pensioner and £4 is just unaffordable.
  • We would only stay for 15 minutes at Eastham Country Park . Cost therefore £16 per hour .
  • We should be encouraging people to keep fit and enjoy the outdoors, not discouraging them. Knock on effect of obesity, depression etc = more costs to NHS
