Record-breaking petition shows extent of opposition to new parking charges regime

What a town, and what a business community! This petition, organised by the East Grinstead Business Association (EGBA), collected a massive 5,215 signatures in just a week to oppose the introduction of increased parking charges in the town – and the extension of charges into evenings and Sundays/Bank Holidays.

EGBA also raised a strong objection to the lack of consultation with town residents and businesses, and will continue to represent you as discussions with Mid Sussex District Council continue. This has given us the ammunition we need to have a strong voice on your behalf.

Huge thanks are due to our town’s amazing community – the businesses and volunteers who helped collect signatures – and to our members and everyone who took the time to sign and support our town.
