I believe that the extension of car parking charges to 8 pm every evening in Halifax Town Centre will be extremely damaging for the many restaurants and public houses as well as the theatres and other social and entertainment establishments.

These Town Centre businesses are already finding attracting customers difficult and parking charges for early evening customers will put car users off.
The Labour/ Liberal Democrat Council do not understand our local economy and have no plans to support Halifax Town centre and their proposals to introduce extra parking charges will only make the situation worse.
