9:00am Wednesday 18th December 2013 in News
A campaign against potential new parking charges is gathering pace.
The Stop Taxing Our Parking (STOP) Campaign, spearheaded by businesses and community groups, is against Maldon District Council proposals to introduce evening and Sunday fees in Maldon town centre car parks.
The council, is also considering axeing free Saturday parking at its offices in Princes Road.
Mary Powell, owner of The Emporium and a Maldon Business Association member, said: "It is about the businesses, the clubs and residents, who have all got together to form the STOP Campaign and that’s what has made it so powerful.”
More than 1,000 people have signed the campaign's petition.
