Free after 4 campaign taking off

The campaign by Sasha Gillard-Loft and myself to highlight the fact that Cornwall Council car parks in Launceston are now free after 4pm is taking off.

For all the bad news of the parking changes that came into force on May 9th, the one bit of good news is that you no longer have to pay after 4pm (previously charging hours ended at 5). But the Council has not been promoting this change leading to many people still paying when they don't need to.

The response from the Council was a small and unclear message on the car park noticeboards indicating that new charges and parking hours were in operation. Still people are paying when they don't need to.

And so we have been giving posters to shops and businesses in the town centre to highlight the change. Apologies to those businesses who have asked for posters and who we haven't been able to get to so far, but demand really has been that high. We will get to you in the next couple of days.
