Windsor Parking

Posted by davidburbage on March 29, 2007

We announced our first election policy this week. Actually, that’s already not the whole story because we pledged to pay for alley gating gates last week.

So, let’s call it the first major pledge. Short term on-street parking in Windsor will be free for Advantage Card Holders. There’s not much more to say than that, but the basic idea is that you put your Advantage Card on the dashboard and, for short term parking at least, you will not need to pay.

We don’t know why this hasn’t already been done considering the immensely fiddly and awkward task of asking residents to 1) find their card 2) take it to the machine 3) put it in the machine, hoping it works 4) pay 10p 5) get the ticket 6) take everything back to the car and put the ticket on display

That isn’t worth 10p of a resident’s time, and this inconveniance can be removed.

It is worth noting that the car parks (off street) themselves would be unaffected by this change – they still remain the main income source from all parking.
