4 August - Free parking

Bexley Times reportCouncillor Linda Bailey said recently that she had made a bid for funding from Boris Johnson for, among other things, “free parking in council-run car parks for four weekends in the lead-up to Christmas” and that would be “an excellent opportunity to give Bexley’s town centres a real boost. If we are successful the Mayor’s funding will make a real difference to local people and traders at a very important time of the year”.

It is good to see councillor Bailey acknowledging that councillor Craske’s policies of racking up parking charges at well above any inflation rate is damaging to business and to hear that the Mayor has today come up with the money. £207,500 to rejuvenate the town centre by revamping street furniture, replacing bins and giving it a deep clean. There must be a Mayoral election due soon.
