Mayhew Animal Home - Controlled Parking Zone Petition
Petition Background (Preamble):
1. The Council is classing The Mayhew as a business and charging us business rates for parking permits. We are quite clearly not a business, but a charity: A not-for-profit organisation that provides numerous services for the local community and London as a whole.
2. We are being allowed 2 permits, but on a daily basis use four vehicles: Three Animal Ambulances and one general purpose vehicle. Two permits alone will cost The Mayhew £1760.00 per year.
3. The Council have brought in a height restriction for vehicles of 2.28m. Our main Animal Ambulance, funded by supporters money and launched April last year, is ten centimetres taller than this and is being refused a permit altogether.
With regard to the new Controlled Parking Zone around College Park, I am in favour of The Mayhew Animal Home being granted an exemption so that they may keep their four essential vehicles (including the vehicle that stands at 2.3m high) and so that they may park two of them in ambulance bays outside their premises.
