Maldon: Petition planned to fight against parking charges
3:00pm Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in News
A nursery worker is planning to set up a petition to fight a planned parking shake-up.
Julie Papworth, of Dorset Road, Maldon, believes Maldon District Council's proposed evening and Sunday charges would discourage people from shopping in the town and force traders out of business.
She also opposes suggestions the free parking at the council's offices on Saturdays should be axed and charges introduced.
She said: “I support the high street and I think it’s going to be the last nail in the lid of the coffin."
Ms Papworth, who works at Maldon Community Pre-School, in Wantz Chase, claimed the council were “squeezing the wrong people”.
