More details from petition creator

There is a shortage of car parking near Boulters Lock - Maidenhead's main attraction for visitors and residents. The car park is often full to bursting in the summer & at weekends throughout the year. Pressure will increase when a footbridge is built across the river to the new Taplow Country Park. The introduction of residents' parking restrictions nearby has further increased demand on capacity.

The Council owns half an acre of waste land adjoining the existing car park, previously used as an overspill car park, but currently fenced off. Making use of this land to extend the car park is an obvious and sensible course of action.

Under pressure from residents, the Council agreed to conduct an analysis of extending the car park. It took them less than two weeks to reject the idea on cost grounds, without obtaining any proper estimates or doing modelling based on future demand or revenues. The councillor who made this decision later described it as "hardly rigorous".

The council should look at this again. It has a problem with demand for parking near Boulters Lock, and a ready-made solution staring it in the face - a solution which offers the best outcome for the people of Maidenhead.
