I appreciate that parking costs money, but an hour in Bude, which leaves you little time to do anything, costs 70p, whereas a more realistic 1-2 hours costs £2.50. I mean, I for one won’t stop anywhere for shopping or refreshments if I am having to pay £2.50 in parking.
Overstay your 2 hours and it’s a massive rise to £4.30. A day at the beach would cost £6.70. That cuts into the ice creams! It also encourages people to park where they shouldn’t.
As for those working in seasonal jobs, often at minimal wage rates, does this really help as it drastically cuts into income levels? Why no local tariff?
I don’t feel the car parking tariff structure from Cornwall Council makes any sense, but if anyone can explain it, then I’m happy to listen.
