Parking is the subject of great debate in Ryedale. Most of the traders feel that free parking for the first hour or three would help keep this wonderful area of Ryedale ahead of the game and would help us to compete against the FREE PARKING of the 'Out of town shopping parks'. Charging visitors or shoppers to 'spend their money' is not a cleaver thing to do. The council then dreamed up a way to stop the visitors from giving their unused and, paid for time to some one else by requiring the car's registration to be entered onto the ticket. This is to say the least, mean or just plain stupid. What we need is plenty of free parking but what we have is a constant but steady loss of spaces for all sorts of idiotic reasons and more and more stupid and unfriendly charges to make sure the 'Out of town shopping parks' get stronger and stronger.

If you have any experience of this problem, please E-Mail me with the details at David@ryedale.co.uk
