The poor state of Blagdon Road Car Park is harming the trade of New Malden’s business owners The car park, has been covered with graffiti, with no maintenance carried out by Kingston Council, which has been putting off people from visiting the town centre.
Conservative councillor Ian George said: “The poor state of Blagdon Road multi-storey car park is putting off people from using New Malden businesses in the High Street. The graffiti has been there for some time, and the car park and public toilets are rarely cleaned or maintained. On Saturday the Malden Centre car park was completely full, but still hardly any cars used the multi-storey next door, and it’s no surprise.
“New Malden residents and businesses deserve better from the LibDem-run council. The car park is filthy and covered in graffiti, which encourages antisocial behaviour. It’s no wonder people don’t want to use it. Local residents and businesses are paying the price for Kingston Council’s couldn’t-care-less attitude.
