Does any one know what is happening regarding the possible parking charge?

Has it be scrapped or are they still figuring out if they can inforce it on people.

What happens if you dont have an up to date phone with all the bits or do not have a phone?

Yet more discrimination against older people not up to speed with mobile technology or those with poor dexterity who can't use or don't want to use a phone to pay, eg. maybe have security concerns.

Perhaps you could ask this in the agonise Green Councillirs thread. Or ask Renata Hamvas.

I see it took Southwark quite a while to bring this charge in, unless they meant April 1 this year.

The paper (see link in first post) prepared by head of parks and leisure is worth reading. Two key points-providing the car parks costs money and the people funding this should be the car park users (though it will also generate a healthy profit). Secondly charges will be competitive, significantly less than Brockwell Park.

Hi James, I support this charge, although I live near P.R. and doubtless people will park in my road instead!! My question is what do the Council plan to do about the service road to the car park. Lots of people park there, I suspect some have slept there in the past and then of course there are the Saturday evening family footballers (whom I think have been disgraceful harassed by local residents-probably on racial grounds). Will car parking charges apply to the access road or will it be no parking?
I am also concerned that this might lead to more parking on the road which will increase risk to cyclists.

I don't have too much of an issue with parking fee, discourage people from driving etc. However, the eyesore of the signposts is what bothers me. A black signpost every 2-3 metres along the grass verge on both sides is a little bit overkill, and presumably the meters are yet to be installed so that will be more furniture clogging the park.
There is a real problem with excessive street furniture and I wish it could be addressed.
