I fully support Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s stance against the proposal of seafront parking charges.

I was not aware that proceeds from parking charges went into a county pot and view this as unfair, especially when other towns do not contribute.

The out of season charges will adversely affect locals and visitors alike in Great Yarmouth in the off season period. Why do we have a county wide partnership? I suggest that, subject to legal advice, GYBC fights this proposal not only in the off season but fights the contribution of parking charges received locally being put into a central pot.

Great Yarmouth needs the money more than most places as some rural towns are much richer (I.e. The likes of Holt). Once again the motorist is seen as a cash cow.
