PETITION WAVERLEY BOROUGH COUNCIL
TO REVERSE THE DECISION TO EXTEND CHARGING HOURS
IN HASLEMERE CAR PARKS FROM 6PM TO 7PM
In February 2012, parking hours were extended in Haslemere car parks. A note from Waverley Borough Council informs they are constantly looking at how the current parking strategy is working across the borough, and they will have 6 months’ worth of data to look at in August (6 months after the introduction of the new tariff structure). The review of arrangements at Chestnut Avenue will be carried out by officers at that time, with a view to reporting any findings, and recommended changes to the current approach, at the next available Executive meeting. This is likely to be the October meeting, which takes place on 2nd October.
This is the wording of a petition which is being circulated in Haslemere shops.
I request a reversal of this decision because of the negative impact it has had on the Haslemere community, particularly visitors to and volunteers involved with events at the Haslemere Hall and Haslemere Museum. Community life in the evening is an important part of the vibrancy in the town and has been curtailed by this change. The consultation process, while satisfying the statutory requirements, was wholly inadequate and I do not feel I had a chance to object.
If you are happy with the extended parking hours, there is nothing more for you to do.
If you wish to petition to reverse the decision, the petition is available here, PETITION FOR WAVERLEY BOROUGH COUNCIL TO REVERSE CAR PARK CHARGING HOURS. Petitions may be handed in to JL Nobbs, 27 High Street, Haslemere.
