Nick urges residents to take part in Hospital Parking Charter consultation

August 31, 2009 7:41 AM

Nick Perry, Lib Dem parliamentary hopeful for Hastings & Rye, has called on local people to take part in the consultation organised by the British Parking Association to develop a Hospital Parking Charter.

The BPA, which is based in Haywards Heath, requires submissions before 18 September 2009.

Speaking after submitting his consultation return, Nick said,

"Whilst I will continue to argue that the NHS should be free at the point of delivery, I do think that it is vital that local people take the time to make their submission to the British Parking Association, in order to keep up the pressure for a fairer deal on hospital parking charges.

"I hope that the people of Hastings & Rye will use their experience of parking at the Conquest to make their submission before 18 September 2009.

"I have asked Dave Smith of the BPA to keep us regularly updated in respect of the planned Charter.

"In a constituency like ours, where health inequalities abound, this is a crucial issue to get right."
