Jonathan Lord MP has launched a petition at Woking Borough Council to reinstate three hours of FREE parking at Woking Park. The Council’s new charges are adversely affecting the users of the Leisure Centre and the Pool in the Park and those making the most of Woking Park itself. There are many great activities and schemes at the centre, keeping a broad range of Woking residents both physically and mentally well. This reduction in free parking detracts from that experience, not allowing for social time after sessions, as well as making it difficult or impossible for many people to engage in more than one activity on the same visit. Parking remains free at the Eastwood Leisure Centre in Sheerwater as well as at leisure centres in Guildford, Camberley and Egham, so introducing these increased charges at Woking Park is an unnecessary and very unhappy anomaly.
Woking Borough Council should not be putting barriers up to health and wellbeing activity by reducing free parking by a third at Woking Leisure Centre. Having been contacted by many regular users of the Leisure Centre and Pool in the Park about this issue, he have launched this official petition to reverse the charges.
