Keep the Free Customer Parking in Preston Drove and Ditchling Road, Fiveways
Original Introduction of Pay & Display parking in 2015 on Preston Drove had a significant & detrimental impact on trade for all businesses in the area.
The current free parking was instated after our original petition to the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, March 2015.
We would like the parking to stay as it is: 1 hour free parking, no return for 2 hours.
Whilst we understand that the council faces numerous financial
challenges, we do not believe that retaining the limited free
spaces on Preston Drove and Ditchling Road, would have a
significant impact on income for the council, and would be
extremely damaging to the local area and businesses, which would be
damaging to the city, the local area and the vibrancy and diversity
of shopping for local people.
