Re PARKING AT FISHERS GREEN
Category : Club News
As some of you already know the LVRPA is introducing Car Parking charges for The Hooks Marsh and Stubbins Hall Lane car parks from 8th March. Charges are First Hour Free and the £2.50 for 24hrs. Penalty charge of £100 if no Ticket.At Stubbins Hall Lane, once inside the Combination Gate to the river our two car parks are unaffected however Camera’s have been erected covering the route past the car Park to the Fishers Green Gate. We were told that they would only cover the entrance and exit to the Car Park. Clearly they do not. It is unclear how these will operate and clarification is being sought.
Hooks Marsh is altogether different as in the past we have shared the Car Park with the Dog Walkers, Bird Watchers and general members of the Public. So far we have been unable to come to a solution that gives Consortium Anglers free parking though several ideas have been put forward.
I have also asked for the 24 hrs period to be defined as both Car Parks are locked at Night with Consortium members using the combination to gain access.
These charges have been instigated at a high level inside the LVRPA and we are currently trying to find the correct person to address our fears and arrange a Meeting accordingly.
Please be patient as a solution may take a little time but feel free to register your comments on the Parking to the LVRPA at Middelton House on 0300 003 0610 or send an e-mail. I have complained on your behalf but that counts as only one complaint. Please encourage your members to make the call to complain. It will help.
I will keep you all informed of progress
