It will just encourage people to park in the roads surrounding the Park (Along with the roads that already have a problem with people parking in them to use the hospital) so they don't have to pay to use the park!

That'll be a plan!!
Pay to park in the Country park which and money made is ploughed back into the maintenance etc of the park (a good thing) - Then because of the knock on effect for the residents surrounding the area a residential area is introduced thus creating more income for parking services and CBC..... No wonder they were happy to "offer" their services at the Country park as it will no doubt be beneficial to them in the long run!

Say It As It Is OK? says...

In this case the council are damned if they do and damned if they don't.

Anyone visiting the country park, who want to avoid the parking charges, drive to the Chanterelle car park, which remains (for now) free to all users. The downside is the visitor centre off Turner Road will suffer as they might have to close due to a reduction in visitor numbers.

The reason charges are being applied is staff and visitors to the hospital and other NHS units on Turner Road use the Turner road country Park car park to save on paying to park at the Hospital.

And, yes the knock on effect will further cause problems in local side streets, where little thought has ever been given to residents.

Residential street parking issues, throughout Mile End, are evident every day. Motorists using the Station, the Hospital or Cuckoo Farm Stadium (on match days) try to avoid paying to park and often leave their cars for many hours at a time.

CBC introduced a ground breaking Travel Plan for the Stadium, that promised to keep the roads in Mile End free of supporters parking but this is largely ignored and certainly not enforced by the council, who are the ones who created the problem by building a stadium without adequate thought for parking or for local residents access.

CBC decided to ignore some of the conditions required in the planning application for the stadium because they were both applicant and the approving body, for their own planning application! This gave them freedom to do whatever they wanted, clearly something they would not give to a private individual or developer putting in a planning application!

Promises made by the council have, todte come to nothing, so what chance is there for residents around Turner Road?

Good job then that I hand delivered 300 street letters in the last day to Wryneck Close, Hollymead Close, Lufkin Road, Beaumont Close, Fieldview Close and Kingswood Road updating residents of the Parking options being offered to them vote on to combat patient parking. Residents are being asked to choose between Resident's Parking, single yellow lines during hospital visiting hours, double yellow lines to remove all parking or leaving as is.

The North Essex Parking Parternship will be sending letters to all residents which will allow them to respond officially and then once this is collated the schemes can be worked up.

Sorting this issue is the number 1 priority in Colchester and will happen!

There are 3 problems with parking at Chanterlle:

a) its smaller than the main car park and so is now likely to be busier than ever

b) the visitors centre is at the paid for car park

c) the newly opened kids playground is at the paid for car park

This was a stupid idea from the start designed to raise revenue under the pretence of solving hospital parking issues. I would like to see how the financial forecast now stands up based on the fact that the overall parking income is woefully short of where it was expected to be.

A complete waste of time and money.

What a ridiculous reply we all have our bins collected and have streetlights and pay for these from our council tax.

So you do not pay for my bins to be collected I do.

We don't all use a car park.

Why should the non-users pay for a service that isn't a necessity?

Using TheCaptain's reasoning then we should only pay for the services we use. There are many services we all pay for but don't use.

A typical one, on the subject of parking, is those with blue badges who get free parking in Colchester car parks. This means the rest of us, even those who don't use car parks pay to cover the cost of those who park for free! Some would say having a disability is not about whether someone can afford to pay or not but that is how it is!

How absurdly parochial. This problem might be a priority for one corner of Mile End but the rest of Colchester has far more important issues, which none of the present councillors seems interested in.
What about providing a decent bus station, Mr Goss?
What about guaranteeing that you will not sell off tennis courts for housing?
What about preserving the council's sheltered housing?

And what about the residents on "Northfields", They are nearer to the Country park than the roads you have quoted, The problem will soon shift from the above roads to the new development which hasn't even been taken on by the Council, so what hope have the residents go there, Parking is already an issue as it is with people from all over using residents "allocated" parking spaces.

Personally I am not objecting to paying to park, where have I said I was? The comment referred to essential services and whether or not we should all pay for non essential services. Principally we are in agreement that non essential services should be paid for only by those using the service.

As far as libraries are concerned, they are "nice to have" and do offer educational benefits but are used by less people nowadays with the advent of the internet and ereaders. A library can therefore hardly be called "essential", just like its not essential that blue badge holders are given free parking in car parks. Having a blue badge is not about the holder being unable to pay to park but more to do with their medical needs. Therefore, this is also not an essential service that blue badge holders get free parking at the expense of everyone else, many of whom don't even drive.

To clatify some of the comments above:

1. When I say this is the number 1 priority for Colchester I am referring to traffic schemes - sorting this issue around the hospital is number 1 in Colchester for parking schemes.

2. Northfields will be covered by its own scheme as the roads are built and adopted. The developer will have to fund this and a scheme will need to happen on this area too. All roads are unadopted so the scheme will be handled in conjunction with the developer Linden Homes.
