[QUOTE=Serenity]This is a free public recreational ground car park meant for recreational purposes for local people and not for out of town commuters wanting to use it as an overflow car park for the hospital,be it payed or otherwise.
We're already having to pay the price to be able to park on the road where we live so what next, pay to use our recreational facilities.

Serenity - You make excellent points regarding the parking issues.

The challenges for parking locally are only going to worsen in time and this is simply down to growth, there is little that can be done, but we can be prepared and have sound strategic plans in place.

In an ideal world, the parking would remain free for everyone to enjoy the recreational facilities. Unfortunately, circumstances dictate otherwise.

Oliver is rightly trying to resolve the antisocial behaviour problems and his proposed solution is to only make the car park available at weekends when matches are being played. I was trying to offer a solution that would make the car park more accessible. Unfortunately, the days of free parking whether it be for leisure, retail or commercial use are pretty much gone now.

The hospital will no doubt continue to grow and the parking problems will probably become worse. At least if the car park did become pay and display the revenues would be into the council coffers.
