"This could kill town centres": Protest against Rayleigh town centre car parking charges

Southend Standard: "This could kill town centres" "This could kill town centres"

ANGRY residents and traders protested against the increase in parking charges saying they will turn their high streets into “ghost towns”.

More than 30 people turned out in Rayleigh High Street to vent their anger at Rochford Council, which last week rubber stamped a 25 per cent rise in its car park charges, and scrapped free parking on Saturday afternoons.

Councillors from parish, district and county level joined members of Rayleigh Chamber of Trade, Rayleigh and Hullbridge Action Groups, Essex Federation of Small Businesses, and traders.

Carl Watson, chairman of Rayleigh Chamber of Trade, who runs Squires coffee shop in High Street, Rayleigh, said: “This could potentially make Rayleigh a ghost town on Saturday afternoons.

“Rochford Council is involved with a shop local campaign, there is a town team trying to promote and regenerate towns and bring people in, and it has the nerve to do this.”

“I was really pleased with the amount of people who turned out to protest.”

Motorists will have to pay an extra 20 pence an hour to park their cars from April 1, when the price goes up from 80 pence to £1.

The current free parking from 1pm on a Saturday will also be abolished as the council looks to increase revenue as part of their four-year financial strategy that was approved last Tuesday.

Feathering Your Nest shop assistant Grace Everitt said: “People come to us from as far as Romford.

“If they see the car park prices go up, added to the increase in fuel prices, they will go somewhere else.

“We worry about other shops too. We don’t want any more to close, but this will have a knock-on effect.”

Lib Dem Rochford councillor for Downhall and Rawreth, Chris Black, will raise a “compromise motion” at the next full council meeting on February 18, calling for the new Saturday afternoon charges to scrapped.

Angelina Marriott, chairman of Hullbridge Parish Council, said: “For residents of Hullbridge, Rayleigh is their closest place to shop. If someone is on a tight weekly budget, paying extra for parking can make all the difference.”

Catch 22, as the traders want to make a profit, and pay high business rates etc
The council also want to make money from the parking, as well as from the traders, the public pay for the parking, then have to rush around, on a time clock, save getting a ticket, seeking that elusive bargain, whilst all this is being thought of, another thought springs to mind, Lakeside...

I doubt 30 or so protesters are going to make the Council sit up and listen, can't remember the last time Rochford Council reversed one of their many bad decisions. Maybe the local residents could get together in much larger numbers and meet at the Council offices, similar to the way the French do things!

And they wonder why High Streets struggle to compete against the internet and out of town retail parks. Higher parking charges = less customers = less revenue for shops and RDC. Result ..all losers, no winners.

We use Hadleigh a lot more now, as there's most of what we need there.
Parking is still free all day on Saturday, and a lot cheaper than Rayleigh the rest of the time.

If we need to go into Rayleigh, we usually walk.

This has been the case for Southend for years and a major reason for the decline of the High Street. Do Southend Councillors listen to complaints from people about Southend parking charges? Answers on a postcard please!

When I moved to Rayleigh many years ago, all the car parks were free and I used to do all my shopping in Rayleigh. When parking charges were introduced, I reduced my shopping in Rayleigh to some extent. Over the years the charges have gone up steeply. Now I have stopped shopping in Rayleigh completely. Some of my friends have also done likewise.

its going up from 80p to a £1....and that's going to stop people shopping??? the prices of the parking is not the reason the number of people shopping in the highstreet has declined, it's...1. the lame shops that exist within Rayleigh and 2. The prices of the products within them!

The flip side to the whole argument has to be, do we the residents in Rayleigh mind if it's not as busy, as it might be ? for those living in or very close to the centre of town, do we really mind, if we can shop, without the queues? no.
It's all down to the greed of one group, the retailers, and the greed of the council.

Now this is a joke, right. We are talking about 20p here and people are not willing to pay it hope cheap. I totally agree the parking should be increased, infact £1 is still very cheap compared to neighbourghing towns we should pay more. Also, no one shops in Rayleigh as there is no decent shops. The Travellers are coming too, time to sell up and leave town i recon before our beloved town gets even worse.

Good more space for me, though I tend to do my shop at Asda, I do like the quaintness Rayleigh offers, only a shame about all the cars, If I had my way I'd double it, that would keep the small pursers out. but we too have the odd flat dweller.

Then it's up to those who voted for a specific councillor to remain in contact with him or her. People need to be more demanding of the things that are close to their hearts. No good moaning about it on here.

Yes, protesting in a group is good but even better to continue to keep track of your own local councillor who is involved and demand answers when they don't vote your way.

In other words, we have to make our public servants accountable.

Far too many people think their responsibility ends at the ballot box. It doesn't. That's where it begins.

These people are our employees and we are the employers. It's up to us to keep a tight rein on them.

I am in regular contact with my MP on issues that are closest to my heart.

"small purser", "flat dweller".... can you be more specific about the people you are discriminating against this time?

So everybody who lives in a flat is a liability are they? And a by "small purser", I suppose you mean pensioners on low income who only shop for a few bits of fruit and veg?

As you often make assumptions about me and the things I say, I claim the same privilege.

So.... without your usual over the top screeching, will you please enlighten us all as to what a "small purser" is and why people who live in flats, in your book are somebody to be "kept out".

I suppose you live in a mansion? I can also assume that, as a champagne Socialist, you are so much loftier than the rest of us....

Oh yes, I often wear tweed, go shooting, am a member of a number of high end clubs, I am in the English heritage, nothing like your sort of affiliation, I enjoy the local community spirit, and am a landlord, giving many people working professionally the chance of comfortable living.
Small pursers are generally the sort of people, who want it all, for next to nothing, people living on credit with a chip about their place in society.
Flat dwellers, somewhat the same really, dreamers and wanna bees, the sort of people who one would cringe at, in a smart eatery, clear enough for you to grasp ?
