Councillor Chris Lloyd, seconded by Councillor Alison Scarth, has submitted a discussion topic, which is “Car Parking charges in Hillingdon”

As part of the discussion, the following motion will be moved:-

    Three Rivers District Council believe that the implementation of the Hillingdon First Project to increase car parking charges is unfair to residents of Three Rivers, who rely on the facilities within the borough for work, education, shopping, religious worship and leisure.

    The Council believes that such penalties on non-Hillingdon residents will be counter productive reducing the number of people using local shops and businesses.

    The Council call on Hillingdon Council to change the policy and ask the Chief Executive to arrange an urgent meeting.
