So here we go again, Wirral’s Labour-led Council, while scrapping parking charges in Birkenhead are looking at options to increase car parking charges across Wirral, and look again at introducing new car parking charges at Fort Perch Rock in New Brighton, Eastham Country Park, Royden Park, Wirral Country Park and Arrowe Country Park. Why else would the Cabinet Member sign off the procurement notice for pay and display machines in the wards that these parks and open spaces sit in? That decision notice can be viewed HERE
Now tried this a couple of years ago and it caused uproar and outrage with people coming together, petitions being signed to tell this Labour lot where to get off, and thankfully that people power resulted in the plans being dropped.
Now we need everyone to come together again to oppose this madness. I am aware that one New Brighton resident, Darren May has already started the ball rolling with an online petition to oppose charges being implemented at Fort Perch Rock. You can sign that petition by clicking HERE.
Other friends groups may wish to set up their own petitions whether online or hard copy. One thing is for certain we need to harness people power and send a message to this Council.
