Sir Ed proposes free parking compromise for Market Rasen

Sir Edward Leigh, the Conservative MP for Gainsborough, has proposed a compromise to the dispute over the imposition of parking charges in Market Rasen.

The MP of over three decades service in the Commons has written to West Lindsey District Council arguing that charges should only be imposed upon those who use the same spot for over two hours.

“If vehicle owners are given two free hours before charges are imposed,” Sir Edward wrote, “it will continue to allow consumers to patronise local businesses but prevent all the parking places from being taken up by long-term users.”

“We know there are many legitimate concerns regarding access to parking and charges,” Sir Edward told the press, “and I hope West Lindsey will look into this compromise.”
