Dec 04 - GSD Calls On Government To Reconsider Sale Of Parkings Beneath Schools

The GSD has called on Government to reconsider the sale of parking spaces beneath the new comprehensive school - a move that the party has described as a “blatant grab for cash” - and instead offer them for rental.

The party says that only the very wealthy could afford the asking prices whereas by offering spaces for rental, much can be done to alleviate the parking problems in the town area created by this Government’s “misguided” policies.

Trevor Hammond, GSD transport spokesman said: “It’s incredible that a so called socialist government should so blatantly be profiteering from the community and it’s another indication of just how desperate the public finances are. The Government has first created a parking problem in town and is now seeking to make millions out of it at the expense of the people.

“First the Government failed to deliver the promised two stories of parking under Commonwealth Park, then they built the monstrous midtown parking which might have provided adequate facilities in the town area but instead Government sold half of the spaces off, in one instance, ten spaces to one entity. Having denuded town of parking they went further and introduced zonal parking, creating a further shortage for those needing to access town from out of town and now they take advantage of this lack of supply in a most underhand way and again, only to help the wealthy. After all, who has a spare £30,000 for a parking space?

“The fact is that once these parking spaces are sold, they will severely curtail the opportunity for future Governments to expand the school in the future.

“Government has lost its way entirely, ministers have become so arrogant that they are no longer interested in the fundamental needs of the community as a whole but only those of the rich. The spaces should be rented at reasonable prices to reduce the current parking dilemma faced by so many.”
