Up go parking permits - only 20%!

Tory H&F council is planning to increase the cost of residents' parking permits by 20%. The decision to increase the annual charge from £99 to £119 will be taken at the next Tory cabinet meeting on 14 October.

hfconwatch must have missed this plan to put residents first in the Tories' manifesto at the recent council elections.

The cabinet report also forgets to mention that the council already makes £15 million profit a year from parking and penalty tickets. This profit will be topped up by increases in the cost of parking tickets and visitor permits in the borough. Tell your friends and family to go elsewhere.
