Whilst the Bath Road Traders Association strive to make the Bath Road and surrounding areas pleasant places to live and work, they feel the Councils approach to parking regulation must be stopped.

It is generally believed/accepted that the proposed parking scheme has not been initiated by and is not fully supported by local residents. Therefore the introduction of parking meters, parking permits and subsequent fines can only be seen as a new Council “Money Spinner” or “Stealth Tax”.

With the current economic climate, it is not acceptable to burden Residents and Traders with extra costs on top of the high Council Tax and Business Rates, they may struggle to afford currently. Their plans will leave a blossoming trading area without sufficient street parking, thus driving many shoppers to alternative shopping areas and endangering business to the Bath Road.

We, the undersigned, call on Gloucestershire County Council & Cheltenham Borough Council to take no further action with regard to their South Cheltenham Parking Review/Scheme.

We therefore ask for the suspension of any parking schemes specifically in the Bath Road/Leckhampton Area of South Cheltenham.

The STOP THE INTRODUCTION OF THE PROPOSED SOUTH CHELTENHAM PARKING SCHEME petition to Gloucestershire County Council was written by Bath Road Traders Association and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
