We the undersigned petition The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to Reverse the decision to impose charges for resident parking permits. More details

More details from petition creator

The Council has recently decided to impose charges for resident parking permits and have advised that this is to fund an unexpected shortfall in funding for care services for adults and children. We do not take dispute the need to fund such services properly, but take issue with the decision to raise the necessary funds disproportionately from residents who happen not to have off-road parking, as this is not a good proxy for ability to pay. We note that the policy did not form part of the ruling party's manifesto in 2019 and there is no democratic mandate for it.
