SUZY Stride, Labour’s General Election candidate for Harlow, has been speaking to residents in Harlow and hearing their concerns about rising car parking fees. She raised these concerns with Mark Wilkinson and others. The Council have now decided not to introduce the 20p for the first hour of parking because of residents concerns.
Suzy Stride recognised that the council is in financial difficulty and needs this money to pay for the paddling pools but has asked the council to see if they can find the money by changing the fee structure.
Suzy Stride, Labour’s General Election candidate for Harlow said:
“It’s great to hear from Mark Wilkinson that my concerns have been addressed. I am delighted the council is set to announce that it will not introduce the 20p increase for the first hour and is looking at ways to change the fee structure to enable savings to be made in other ways.
“I know the Council has been forced to make difficult decisions because of Tory Government cuts to local council funding but local people told me that they rely on the reduced parking rate- particularly when families are feeling the squeeze. Harlow Council’s decision shows that it listens and acts for Harlow residents.”
