‘Plain daft’ Sunday car parking charges in Ludlow

Shropshire Council’s cabinet today decided to charge for on street parking in Ludlow on Sundays.

This is decision is a blow for Ludlow. Shoppers are very sensitive to parking charges. No town can afford to scare off potential customers.

The length of time shoppers can park on the streets on Sundays should certainly be restricted to encourage them to use the car parks. But they should be able to park for free (though they should have to display a ticket issued without charge).

Charging when other towns don’t charge is plain daft.
