Letter: Parking - Lost revenue opportunity?

Parking - Lost revenue opportunity?

You report that Coun Don Mackenzie announced plans for Sunday and evening on-street parking charges were likely to return for review by NYCC executive in the next few months, on the basis of traffic management rather than monetary grounds.

I feel NYCC see vehicles parking free on Sundays and evenings, and look upon it as lost revenue.

However if Coun Don Mackenzie is to be believed, then why not charge for on-the street parking, but make public car parks free on Sundays and evenings, which are currently charged?

This would achieve NYCC traffic management’s aims.
