  1. It should be the responsibility of the council to encourage people to start shopping in the towns.This sort of action is nothing but greed.The rush to impose parking charges is a disgrace and to then to say nhs and other key workers will be looked after is just a smokescreen.All parking should be free for the next few months to at least facilitate and help the local economy after all it was before this wretched council came into being.

  2. Re-introducing parking charges is not encouraging shoppers back to the town. Shops and businesses are in a very fragile state and will be for many months to come, especially as the stay at home mentality has necessitated many people having no choice but to order on line.
    Beverley is surrounded by many rural villages and ilnstead of putting people off from coming back to the town, the council should show their support for shops by waving the charges for at least another 3 months to kick start the recovery.
