Parking meters proposed by NT for Botallack, Cape Cornwall and Levant

National Trust meetings about car parking charges started off last Thursday about the car park at Botallack. It is fair to say that no-one attending supported the introduction of charging in the car park and feared that those wanting to avoid charges could park on the by-way or in the village causing local problems. Some were also concerned about the impact of the equipment on the landscape.

For clarity, those concerned about the principle of charging should get along to one of the other meetings set up. Both meetings start at 6.30 p.m. in the Count House at Botallack. The first for Cape Cornwall is on 5 September and the second about Levant is on 22 September. I cannot make the one on 5th (Monday) but will go along again on 22nd.

Those concerned about the impact of the introduction of pay and display machines, in terms of their impact on the landscape can comment on the planning applications through Cornwall Council and the application numbers are on an earlier blog post of mine: Local planning applications

This link will bring up a document that has a better quality photograph of the pay and display machines proposed, at the end of it: NT Planning
