Westminster City Council are proposing to introduce high parking charges on Sundays and evenings which many churches fear will have a severe impact on their services and activities. The churches have been engaged with a number of councillors from across the political groups on Westminster Council voicing our concerns. It is clear from speaking to them that, though there is still a long way to go, our concerns are starting to hit home.
Time is of the essence and so, this Sunday, can we ask you to:-
- post a comment on the facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Stop-Westminsters-Sunday-Parking-Charges/100255330073608 (or write down their stories to present with our petitions)
- sign the petition – either a paper copy or online at http://www.petitiononline.co.uk/petition/westminster-churches-against-sunday-parking-charges/3177
- join other churches for a peaceful gathering outside Westminster Council House in Marylebone Road NW1 5PT from by 6pm Wednesday 20th July
