FREE PARKING for Residents this XMAS in RBWM

SIGN THE Petition to: Offer free parking for residents over the important Christmas retail period to help boost Windsor footfall.

Popped into see Brian last week at Snappy Snaps and shot the video of his thoughts on the damage the current parking policy is having on his business and Windsor in general.

This lead to a petition calling for FREE PARKING for XMAS in RBWM

SIGN THE Petition to: Offer free parking for residents over the important Christmas retail period to help boost Windsor footfall.

The removal of the Advantage Card residents discount has angered residents who are now going to towns like Bracknell as, despite the journey, it’s cheaper to park. The net result is that the council is now earning zero from those doing so as opposed to a discounted fee. To encourage residents to return and shop in THEIR local town centre, free parking over the important Christmas period (up to January) should encourage locals to return in greater numbers. This will also reflect positively on the council giving a win-win outcome.

Thank you.

    1. Yes, we dont go into windsor any more.
      We park in Staines for 4 hours for free. A 7 minute walk to the shops.
      Bracknell is 3 hours for free.
      High wycomb in the park its 50p for 2 hours.
      In Reading there are spaces where you can park for free for as long as you like with a 10 minute walk to the shops.
      Slough has 3 hours free parking at Sainsburys and Tesco.

      RBWM is simply losing money by asking £5.60 for 3 hours. We wont pay it.
