Crediton Lib Dem Councillors Slam Increased Parking Charges

July 4, 2016 10:37 AM

Local Tory Councillors representing areas surrounding the town have voted to double St Saviours car park charges.

Shoppers needing to park for a short time at St Saviours car park will now be forced to pay £2 for a full day's parking they do not need thanks to Local Conservative councillors who decided to vote on party lines and support doubling of the charge which was opposed by the Lib Dems.

Cllr Bob Wright who was one of the instigators of the now scrapped and popular £1 tariff for 5 hours, said: "This is a short sighted decision that will inconvenience local people and damage local trade. We will continue to oppose this increase."
