Today I needed to drive to the shops, but I had no change, so rather than run the risk of a penalty notice, I drove to one of the free car parks at a supermarket. The small minded attitude of this council is in my opinion to blame for the demise of many local shops with very high bussines rates and no relief on high rent. Is there any wonder that we have so many charity shops?
I watched the programme the other night about the downfall in local shopping areas it was so sad and reflected Marple's situation.
Traders, don't blame the supermarkets, blame the councillors and the parking charges
