Letter - Parking has to be free

REGARDING Park & Ride, most people just want to do their shopping, place it into the boot and go, if individuals wished to catch a bus they would use public transport into Wakefield rather than their car.

If Wakefield is to prosper and attract decent retail then parking needs to be free or set at a minimal charge of say for example £1 for several hours, it is the only way to compete with out of town shopping centres due to the fact Wakefield has nothing more, and in some cases less, to offer as far as the retail shopping experience goes.
