Parking charges in Powys are excessive and unnecessary for a county made up predominantly of small market towns. Such charges encourage visitors to park on the streets and roads adding to congestion; discourage tourism and shoppers from returning, and raise minimal funds after traffic wardens and ticket machines are taken into account. Many car parks are often more than half empty.
Removing parking fees from most, if not all, of the car parks in the county would encourage tourists and shoppers to visit our small towns and significantly reduce the number of cars parked on streets and roads.
We, the undersigned, call on Powys County Council to remove car parking fees from car parks throughout the county.
