NHDC proposes charging for evening and weekend parking in Hitchin without consultation

The local press this week reports proposals from NHDC to raise car park charges throughout the town, charging users in the evenings and at weekends. Daytime charges are also set to increase. The Council has invited Councillors and the Town Centre Manager to comment, setting a deadline of September 19th.

This Society has responded by a strong objection sent via the Town Centre Manager Keith Hoskins. This can be downloaded here. Hitchin Forum has instigated a petition, which all objecting to the proposed charges are invited to sign.
