Bolton Parking Change Welcomed

Oct 22 – to Bolton News

Dear Editor,

While I welcome the reintroduction of free parking after 3pm from October 28th until January 10th at three multi-storey council car parks in Bolton, it still does not change the fact that Bolton, for much of the year, drives motorists away from the town.

The Christmas season is the busiest time of the year for most retailers with increased footfall from shoppers with money to spend. For some retailers, sales at Christmas enable the store to stay open throughout the year.

Perhaps if Bolton Council relaxed their draconian attitudes towards motorists all year round, our high street would be in a much healthier state and not have to be so reliant on a busy Christmas period.

This temporary measure also fails to consider the costs of retail workers who will see little or no benefit whatsoever since these restrictions are only relaxed after 3pm.

Yours faithfully
