Parking fees are shameful

Beechwood Road, Holmfield

Shame on you. Shibden is not a park that the majority of people in Calderdale can just stroll into. It already costs more to get to the park (especial with young children) due to the cost of fuel.

What with cuts and the high cost of living with very little spare cash, you then tax the one thing that allows families a bit of freedom and enjoyable time together, an escape from the everyday struggle to make ends meet.

You state that “This small charge for parking will help us to maintain and improve the facilities”.

Are the fees therefore going into a separate Shibden account?

There must still be savings that could be made within the council.
