'£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.

Reasons for signing

  • Charging to use public parks will discourage their use. In these times of increased obesity, surely keeping free access to regular exercise spots is tantermount
  • Parking charges are Supposed to upkeep the road, not be used to further tax the people for the cuts or wasted money. Watch the local shops & businesses decline now!!
  • There should be NO fees charged for parking in and around Parks etc.
