Labour attack Coulsdon again on parking

The Council are at it again. This time they're trying to impose a new £1 charge to park on Brighton Road. As the excellent Coulsdon West Residents' Associaton says, it's time to say no:
'Croydon Council are again proposing to remove the present One Hour Free Parking system from the Brighton Road in Coulsdon Town Centre, and introduce a new £1 charge from Pay & Display machines on Brighton Road to park for 30 minutes or more. The one hour limit will remain.
Many people do not want to lose the present simple one hour free system, and object to the council's plans, which will mean a new more complicated and confusing system and paying more in charges and fines.
Many agree this new £1 charge would be damaging to the town, its residents, businesses and visitors.
Coulsdon is being victimised with new parking taxes that do not apply elsewhere - see below.
The only way to prevent this happening is for people to send in objections.
If a large number of people write in, the council will have to think again.'
We councillors will be writing in to object ourselves, but the more voices we have included the more likely it is they will change their mind on this ludicrous policy.
The CWRA have more details about how you can object on their website.
