Chippenham Parking Charges

I now have the results of the survey which I recently delivered to all Chippenham residents asking for their views on local parking charges.

Thousands replied to the survey. The results are HERE, but I would particularly like to highlight a couple of the key figures:

–          93% of residents agree with me that parking charges in Chippenham are too high
–          88% of residents say that they would shop in the town more often if parking charges were reduced slightly

As a Chippenham resident myself, I want to see these parking charges reduced.

I will present the full survey results to Wiltshire Council and work with them on their consultation to explore how parking charges can be reduced by working with different sectors of the community. We need to find a solution to fund a reduction in parking fees. I’m sure that together we can achieve the community’s goal.
