Spalding parking charge increases: 'Don't kill off our town' - say traders and customers
Shop traders and customers in Spalding are petitioning against the ‘extortionate’ increases to car parking charges in the town - planned now to come in on January 1.
Business owners were shocked to see notices up in council-run car parks and in the media, announcing the start date.
All day parking at The Vista and Spalding Bus Station will go up from £1.30 to £5 and from £1.50 to £5 in Victoria Street. In shorter stay car parks, such as Herring Lane and Vine Street, it will now cost £2.50 to park for four hours, a jump from the current charge of £1.30.
