You can questions DD, but you won't get any answers. One councillor I challenged about the increases in pay for one CEO said they have to pay the higher salary because of competition and they want the best !

Well , did they get the best in either of the last two or is it three ?

Just so long as people know. Parking meters are already at :

Royden has been delayed to 15th I believe.

As for paying for quality that is a fallacy, high prices often mean you are getting ripped off more.

Royden Park parking charges start on 22nd January, I believe the Cafe has lowered prices in an attempt to offset the charges and limit the damage to its customers,at least somebody is trying, although it's never our shortsighted Council is it, words fail me sometimes.

The cafe should has its business rates reduced as there is a loss of amenity. It certainly must have devalued the property.

The annual wirral council budget is around 266 million. So the amount raised by the parking charges is around 0.09%. With losses to small business in places like New Brighton etc this will probably make absolutely no difference to the Council coffers......

...and how much more will they be paying out (not just wages but pensions, and NI contributions, petrol, holidays, vehicle subs etc) for traffic wardens to parade all these places on an hourly basis to cover what will almost be the whole of Wirral.
How many more staff will be needed in the 'fines' department ?

There should be a few jobs going...get in quick !

But if you consider much of the Council budget is inflexible expenditure, the flexible amount of budget is much smaller.

Also if you consider the Council has 1111 different budgetary items then each one would average 0.09%.

Had my say. I was thinking when you pay to park at public places the cost of spending a penny is one pound thirty. Why not fund the toilets from the parking charges.
