In your article on Sunday and evening parking charges (Advertiser, February 11) Coun Mackenzie, North Yorkshire’s executive member for transport, says: “Good parking policy states that drivers wanting to park for long periods should be encouraged to use off-street car parks.”

I don’t disagree with Coun Mackenzie but how does he reconcile this with the decision of Harrogate Borough Council (of which he is also a member) to close the Jubilee multi-storey car park early on several evenings a week?

This means that people wanting to access the Oxford Street end of town have no option but to park on-street unless they want their vehicle to get locked in the multi-storey at 10pm.
