Make the 1st hour free in all public UK car parks

Comment 6th September 2010

Here is an idea to kick start the economy, especially in towns and cities dominated by supermarkets where smaller businesses are often loosing out becuase its free to park at the supermarket wheres its not to go and visit all the independant shops, retailers, markets and banks.  

Simply make the 1st hour parking in all public car parks free – This will open up our town centres again and boost trade. The cost of doing this could be recouped from the additional commerce this would bring.

Why does this matter?

Because lots of small businesses and traders in rural towns are the first to go under when times are tight and this is a way to keep businesses going and give them a chance to grow. It also has the advantage of avoiding the additional burdens on the taxpayer which result when a business goes under such as loss of income from business rates, more unemployed etc.
