For years Morrisions supermarkets (previously Safeway) have allowed a "flexible" approach to the use of their store car park that adjoins Reigate High Street. While there has always been a 2 hour parking limit they have not enforced it hard.
From May 27th 2009 they have implemented a camera-based system that records numberplates and automatically tickets people who park for over 2 hours. Parking tickets are issued by post with a 40 to 70 pounds fine.
The key issue is that the parking limit is now enforced 24 hours per day 365 days per year.
We believe that this is unnecessarily restrictive. It will adversely affect local business in the evening (pubs, bars, restaurants, cinema), as well as penalising local residents. It is also in conflict with Morrison's own self- proclaimed social responsibility ethic of "being neighbourly"!
Keep an eye on morrisons-reigate-parking.co.uk for updates and the blog for full feedback on progress - http://morrisonsreigatecarpark.wordpress.com
We, the undersigned, call on Morrisons Supermarket, Reigate to revise the 2 hour parking limit to apply only between the hours of 8am to 6pm, and to provide clearer signage to explain the newly implemented parking restrictions.
