Thar Chughtai: "95% of our customers prefer to shop locally.
It’s good news for all of us.”
Jeffries Butchers, Norbiton support the scheme
Isabel Consiglio of The Italian Taste thinks it is "a fantastic idea!".
Local business and shop owners have praised the 30 Minutes Free Parking policy from the Conservative-led borough council.
Last December the council introduced 30 Minutes Free Parking outside shops across the borough. Surbiton benefitted heavily, with 30 Minutes Free Parking signs appearing on more roads than anywhere else. Small business and shop owners have been quick to show support for the policy, placing stickers and posters in their windows in areas across the borough.
Conservatives made the pledge to deliver 30 Minutes Free Parking along with four other main promises. These were: an extra one million pounds to improve roads; more police on patrol; improved care services and two more schools. With 30 Minutes Free Parking, the Conservatives have delivered on all five pledges.
