To date an estimated £100,000 has been spent illegally erecting height barriers and introducing an illegal byelaw in a failed attempt to prevent law-abiding folk parking a vehicle overnight. This would pay for at least 6 care workers to look after our elderly.
In addition to this, is the missed revenue raising opportunity of charging up to £6 for 24 hours and pro rota down from there. This in itself would pay the wages of a care worker each year.
All motorhomers I speak to support the introduction of a charge. So why do Lincolnshire County Council prefer to not only decline to charge for these popular car parks but also spend £100,000 in an attempt to prevent folk parking?
Do Lincolnshire folk have a different respect of money than us Yorkshire folk?
