Anyone know why the free car park on victoria street is closed ?
To make you pay elsewhere?
But it can't possibly have happened...
May be flooded?
I'm starting to think that might just have been council propaganda, designed to fob off the public.
Or U T T E R B O L L O C K S as the rest of us might put it, rather like 99.9% of his posts.
I may be wrong of course...
Good to see that the Kingsmead landlords are saving money by not salting the car park while gritting their tenants for hefty rental bills
They’ve also opened an ice rink where the lido was!
Same in the Sainsbury car park whoever owns that (council ?) not even the disabled bays salted but they can increase the price by 10p knowing that it is going to frustrate the customers looking for that extra bit of change but it will of course accept a 20p piece but will not give change.
Same in the one below Marks that will not take 5p's, why not keep it easy for all at a single £1 as they must be raking it in at that price.
Yes I know there is no need to pay to park in Stafford (odds on someone will reply) but never say where that is near to the shops.
Corporation street potholes are getting ever bigger so some care is needed going down there (rare for me) if you want to avoid damage, so it odds on that no councillor lives down there.
Asda, Aldi, Tesco, Almshouses, Mill Street, Eastgate Street, North Walls, Salter Street, Tenterbanks, The Island, Plumbits, Wickes/Currys. Those are just the ones I can remember, I'm sure there are more.
I don't park at Sainsbury's as you have to pay by coin. Use contactless in m&s whenever parking there.
3rd time trying to use contactless there but not working (for others as well)
Thanks for that & got caught out at Asda as I went over the 2 hours in the summer and that was expensive !
Plumbits is only 20mins (?) I think so I avoid there as its easy to run past that.
Will avoid street parking outside houses though as the residents need those places in the main.
The Council own the car park at Sainsburys.
Please don't shout at Sainsbury's staff if... The machine eats your coins, it doesn't print a ticket, the price went up a year ago & you didn't realise, you stayed longer than you paid for, you didn't bother to read the sign & buy a ticket because its sunday/bank holiday/after 6pm, the car park isn't gritted, someone's pranged your car, or if you've received a parking fine... We can do absoloutly nothing, except phone the council to report a non working ticket machine!
If you ask me, all town centre par parks should be free to attract people into a dying town.
I wouldn't bother coming near Castletown if I was any of you. The gnome that walks round and issues tickets to those without a residents permit, has picked up a bit of speed lately. Been several ticketed and clamped round here.
Yes I agree they should be free as I said in an earlier post with the same line (attract people)
What is all that stuff about shouting ?, and the rest of the twaddle ?
Lots of people seem to think all that twaddle is sainsbury's staffs fault....
Well as you were posting a reply to me about the car park ?, ................. need I explain ?
Maybe not, but take it from me that I do not complain to Sainsbury or anyone else about it apart from posting on here.
No idea what you are on about, but have a happy new year!
I think you may have misunderstood as I'm fairly certain @littleme was paying in a general way.
Most of the places that @proactive mentioned aren't outside residents property's and all are commonly used for shopping purposes albeit some are quite short duration if you take walking time to the shops into account.
