Barnet Parking Charges
Question No: 1322 / 2012
What action have you taken to demand of Barnet Council that they reduce their parking charges bearing in mind you publicly condemned the charges as a “tax” during your walkabout in Barnet?
Written response from the Mayor
Parking charges are a matter for the boroughs. However, I am concerned that decisions over parking policy can often impact on economic development and have a detrimental effect on businesses and high streets.
I do not support parking charges or restrictions that might affect economic development, especially in the current economic climate.
