Birkenhead town centre parking charge is ridiculous

Wirral Globe: Birkenhead town centre parking charge is ridiculous Birkenhead town centre parking charge is ridiculous

I HADN'T shopped in Birkenhead for a while.

But having just visited the town for the first time in a long time, I now remember why.

When parking off Market Street in the ghost town of a "business district", I was astounded by what I saw on the pay machine.

£1.05 for an hour, and a machine that offers no change? Seriously?

Which clever clogs in the council thought up that little ruse?

In terms of how contemptuous Wirral Council is towards people who pay for it - think whistleblowers, Lyndale school, turning off the streetlamps, the list goes on and on - I do appreciate that this is small beer.

But it is indicative of the Napoleon-lite prod-noses who gleefully take excessive salaries while treating their paymasters like fools.

Have we not had enough of this yet?

It probably costs more for someone to count up and bag all the 5p pieces than it generates.
It's typical of a backwards thinking bunch of idiots. The shopping centre is full of £1 shops who are thriving not £1.05 shops!

You obviously and hopefully pay road tax and insurance on your vehicle yet dont want to pay to park it, perhaps next time cycle,walk or use public transport, or just shop somewhere else.
Mer and many others do.
