1. Re: car parking

There is avery long thread on this forum about the parking charges at the Polperro Car Park.

It must be hitting the local businesses hard, because you are not the first to make comments about the high charges and it is very short-sighted of the new owner of the car park.

I guess, whilst some people continue to use his car park and pay the high fees, he will continue to charge those fees. Sadly, he has a captive customer base, because there are very few alternatives.

A similar thing is happening to St Ives. Most car parks in St Ives are now run by Cornwall Council and they have decided to stop the all day parking tickets and charge in 3 hour blocks. This means day visitors are disappearing at 5pm and not stopping into the evening for late night shopping, eats and drinks.
