Country park parking charge is just a political decision

DESPITE objections of more than 2,000 people, our rulers have decided to impose a parking charge on our country park for the first time. They don’t listen.

Instead of spending £200,000 per annum on the park (Observer, February 18) spend £160,000 then the £40,000 that they hope to generate would not be needed.

Local elections come up in May so voters will then be able to deliver their verdict on their councillors.

This plan to impose a parking charge on the country park is a political decision, not one of necessity.
