Bad parking time

First published in Letters by

CITY of York Council closed Lendal Bridge for seven months and now Coun Dave Merrett tells us that the council has been working closely with businesses for the past six months looking at improving car access to the city centre – priceless!

Free parking is a great idea to boost trade in York city centre, but 8am to 11am will coincide very nicely with the rush-hour traffic; 1pm to 4pm would be far better, as at least the shops will be open.

As I see it, the Free Parking is a carrot approach to lure people into the city at what is otherwise fairly dead time when people either haven't yet arrived in the city or the shops are shut.
