Theresa continues the fight against car parking charges at St Marks
- Nov 20, 2008
Theresa May is continuing to campaign against car parking charges that were introduced in St Marks Hospital at the beginning of November. Theresa has taken up the concerns of many local residents with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and Lise Llewellyn, Chief Executive of Berkshire East Primary Care Trust (PCT).
The controversial scheme was approved by the PCT in the summer despite a strong local campaign and a petition presented by Theresa, a group of local traders and residents. Theresa said, “I am still strongly opposed to the introduction of car parking charges at St Marks. They are being brought in against the will of hospital staff, local residents and the people of Maidenhead who use the community hospital. I am particularly concerned about the effect this could have on roads around the hospital and will continue to work towards the abolition of these unhelpful charges.”
