For one who began the thread with the phrases 'small town', 'small minds' what did you expect the tone of the responses to be?
If the car parks are already full of other shoppers then making the parking free is going to free up spaces exactly how? If parking was free then surely it would be just as full as it is now?
So how is that going to help the main street traders? Paving the Mall over might give some additional spaces? The plan to build another multi-storey car park in Hoban's car park is unlikely to go ahead now that the building boom is finished.
The only option I can see is to make parking free when the demand for spaces is less - but they already thought of that one. If the shops were to open before 9am would people come to avail of the already existing free parking?
