Pay and Display Madness

Right now I am trying to stop the invasion of pay and display (P&D) machines in one of our small and friendly car parks.

There is a mad plan to put P&D machines in the car park next to the Chemist on the clockhouse roundabout. This is a small car park used mostly by local residents to visit the Doctor, Dentist and Chemist. I am objecting for the following reasons.

1. Parents with small children and the elderly should not visit these local services and have to fumble around for change in order to park.
2. The machines will displace cars into residential areas which we are against - we have enough parking problems in these areas already.
3. This is a "backdoor" tax on residents.

Tell me your thoughts.
