Cost of parking negatively affects small businesses, says FSB

The Federation of Small Businesses has added its voice to concerns that some councils could be cashing in on car parking charges.

Gordon Millward, FSB regional chairman, said:

“This research highlights the need for a clear discussion about parking provision across the region and how to discourage local authorities from using parking fees and fines for financial gain.

“In a recent survey by the FSB, 48 per cent of small firms said that the cost of parking has a negative impact on their business and 42 per cent of small businesses think the cost of parking should be reduced.”
