Bringing People Together
The Car Club (car rental company) I joined, returned my membership fee because I complained that no car was available at the Tudor Road bay for months. I found out that it was not because it was popular, but because there was no car allocated to the bay because it wasn't being used. I have my own theory why that was the case.
We must fix the parking in Hampton, even if it's one bay at a time.
Who agrees the Council should remove the bay and give the bay back to residents?
The Car Clubs, a fancy term for car rental companies, work well in areas where ther is a rich public transport infrastructure that means we can do without cars for a majority of the time. Hampton isn't one of those areas so as I've been saying for sometime, the car clubs won't have sufficient bookings to justify leaving a car in the bays. The bays ar denied to local residents, which I think is wrong.
In central Richmond or Twickenham, where the buses are the cause of the congestion, the clubs can work, but not here. Let's have all the parking bays back.
The car club bays in Tudor Road, Station Road and Dean Road, Hampton, along with many others in the borough, are to be withdrawn.
We have continue to look at other ways of increase the number of parking spaces for residents and people shopping in Hampton.
