Motion text

That this House condemns the action of Wyre Labour Council in its decision to impose charges for the parking of motor cars in certain car parks within the borough; notes that none of the Labour councillors indicated their intention of doing so at the time of their election; is concerned at the effect this measure is likely to have on the commercial success of many businesses within towns in the borough, and the problems caused to individuals coming to those town centres to shop; regrets that it will encourage people to shop in out-of-town supermarkets where parking is free; and calls upon the council to reconsider its decision before irrevocable harm is done to the viability of the town centres of Poulton le Fylde and Garstang.

There are no withdrawn signatures for this motion.
