(ii) to introduce the previously agreed increases in car parking charges by the end of January 2014; and

More details from petition creator

The SHBC Executive recently voted to increase parking charges in Camberley even though Mary Portas' highly publicised report highlighted the desperate need for lower town centre parking charges to ensure the survival of small towns and High Streets. By Surrey Heaths own figures the regional average for 1 hour's parking is £1.08. In Camberley this will soon rise from £1.60 to £1.80 in the MSCP. This 12% increase in already high parking charges won't bring in the extra income SHBC desire if they lose 12% of the town's customers. Their action could well result in the very opposite of what is needed for them, taxpayers, local residents, workers and businesses in Camberley. Some other towns have been brave and insightful, cutting parking charges to improve trade, prosperity and enrich the community of the town, did SHBC consult the Mary Portas Report? I believe the proposed increase in parking charges should be reversed immediately and SHBC should study the effect reduced parking charges has had in revitalising other small towns and consider that as their future course of action.
