Free parking permits for Tendring residents

Clacton and Frinton Gazette: Free parking permits for Tendring residents Free parking permits for Tendring residents

RESIDENTS in Tendring will continue to get free parking permits for a third year in a bid to boost High Street trade.

Tendring Council’s cabinet agreed to the move at a meeting on Friday, January 24.

The scheme was first set up in 2012 to support shops and businesses and help to encourage people to shop local.

The permits go out to every council tax paying household and are valid for all council owned public car parks in the district apart from the Naze at Walton and Holland Haven from 11am every day.

It will now go before a meeting of the full council on February 11 as part of the overall council budget.

You also need good shops, surely, or having a free permit is pointless.

First time i have seen anything stating that this permit is only for Council Tax paying residents.
This explains why i, as a lowly pensioner getting help with Council Tax, did not get a permit last year!
I do not have a car myself due to disability but would have used it when going shopping with my son who comes from Colchester to help me.
We have been paying to park.

I do wonder how effective this is, I have never used it and how many others are the same? Maybe is should be given out by application instead of posting out to all council tax payers, seems like a waste of Money to me!
