Most will be aware that Dorset Council has a series of proposals to raise extra money from local car parks. This includes charging between 6pm and 8pm from Monday to Saturday and daytime on Sundays. The daily rate for some car parks, including those in Bridport and Lyme Regis, is proposed to double.
There are many who are concerned that these new charges will increase parking in nearby residential streets where parking is currently free. There is an online petition calling on Dorset Council to withdraw their plans to extend these car parking charges.
The petition has been launched by the Liberal Democrat Party. However, you are able to sign the petition and state whether or not you want to be updated by email about their campaigns.
