Return of Sunday parking charges in the city centre - your views online
"That's really going to help bring retail back to life in Edinburgh”
Business chief have blasted plans to reintroduce Sunday parking charges in Edinburgh city centre as many firms are battling to survive the impact of Covid-19
I love how they say "shoppers", ignoring the extra burden they have put on tradesman and carers.
In the 11 years I’ve been driving, I’ve never driven my car to do shopping in town! I much prefer the retail parks, easier for parking.
Welcome to Edinburgh, rip off capital, doesn’t care about its residents, knows how to waste money and to mess things up.
So at the moment we can't go into town shopping, but by the time restrictions are loosened the parking charges will have come in, which will discourage shoppers from taking the safest (pandemic wise) method of transport and then they will wonder why the businesses are suffering more!
They’ll achieve carbon neutral by killing the town centre of everything other than tourists. Completely out of touch once again. Perhaps we should be encouraging people into the town centre to create a much needed boost for the businesses which have suffered during Covid.
That's really going to help bring retail back to life in Edinburgh.
Only Edinburgh Council could introduce Sunday parking charges during a pandemic when town centre businesses are suffering and people are trying to avoid public transport. Eejits.
We can't get into the city centre anyway because of the Spaces For People mess and the constant roadworks.
What shop? Frasers gone. Jenners gone. BHS gone. Debenhams going. John Lewis in doubt. M&S will be next.
I knew it wouldn’t be long til this was implemented. Apparently lost over £1 million over lockdown with no parking ticket charges. Money first, residents are a distant afterthought…
Shocking, but I suppose we need the money to help the get us out of this hole we are in.
