Parking Charge Fears in Liskeard.

Parking Charge Fears in Liskeard.

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 2:45pm 7th December 2011.

Businesses are worried higher parking prices in Liskeard will drive shoppers away this Christmas.

Rates doubled to 40p an hour earlier this year.

Now many say trade is down.

Richard Turnham owns a jewellery shop :

"The fact of the matter is that at any given time the car park is being under-used by at least 50 - 60 %. Anything that can help the small business or any business in Liskeard at the moment will be a good thing"

" There's been a massive drop in the amount of people using the car park. Certainly first thing in the morning, which is mostly linked to the fact that people who work and have a business in the town have got nowhere to park due to this new charge"

A public meeting is being held at the Public Hall, 3/5 West Street from 6pm.
