I urge local shopkeepers to lobby councillors over this inflationary increase as it will certainly result in a loss of business.

Before the increase I would park, and, in the 15 minutes allocated for the 20p charge, I would visit the butcher, baker, greengrocer and paper shop.

Now I drive to Waitrose and park for free.
