Trial voluntary scheme to be introduced on Wimbledon Common car park
A voluntary payment scheme for parking in the Windmill Car Park on Wimbledon Common is set to be introduced from late September.
It will be introduced on an initial one-year trial basis after a consultation by the Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators.
Some 92 responses to the consultation were received, with 57% of those who responded being levy-payers. Fifty six per cent said they were willing to contribute and 41% believe that the voluntary charge is a good idea.
People were also encouraged to provide additional comments, with commuters being seen as the biggest problems and 34% of respondents made reference to this issue.
Twenty eight per cent of respondents believe that WPCC should introduce a compulsory charge based on length of stay or during certain time periods.
At a recent meeting, the Conservators agreed that the scheme should be introduced on an initial one year trial basis.
