Parking permit review

It takes administrative time to check and issue parking permits. A couple of years ago there was a suggestion of a charge to the permit holder of £25, but this was never implemented. With staff time, postage and printing, I think it probably costs more than £25. Please review the areas that have parking permit restrictions and see if they are really necessary. In Port St Mary, for example, I don't think it makes any difference to the parking. Parking spaces are at a premium when people return from work in the evenings...and the permits don't apply then. Save the cost of administering a scheme that doesn't have any practical application. I'm not familiar with other permit schemes, but perhaps a review of whether they are cost effective? And the bravery to scrap them if they don't achieve anything, like the one in Port St Mary. 

Why the contribution is important

Too much administration on pointless schemes costs money in admin time, office and printing costs.

    Parking restrictions on commercial vehicles are an extra hassle for small businesses which provide employment and pay taxes etc.
