PE01722: Parking charges at island lifeline ferry ports

Transport

Petitioner: Dr Shiona Ruhemann on behalf of Iona and Mull Community Councils and others

Status:
Lodged

Date Lodged: 19 June 2019

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to island-proof transport infrastructure to ensure that public bodies do not charge for parking in car parks at island ferry ports, which are essential lifeline services, and any proposed island parking charges are subject to rigorous impact assessment.

Petition History:

Please think about locals who already struggle to make ends meet.

Charges will make life difficult for long term Iona residents.

Susan Ann Fairbairn

Please drop this utterly ridiculous plan!

Maggie Thomson

Stop this nonsense and think about the bigger picture.

Disgracful attitude by the council.

The Scottish Government must appreciate that allowing these charges to go ahead, at ferry terminals, flies in the face of all their initiatives to encourage tourism in rural areas.

Please listen to the island community on this one, they understand the impact better than anyone and would be the ones who have to shoulder the negative impact these proposed charges would bring. Changes should benefit a community and if they are telling you this would be a bad change, please listen and act on their voice. Elected parties ought to be representing the community.

Ridiculous charges that will harm a rural economy.

Solo visit in 2016...will not visit again because of charges

It is appalling that the increase in charges will potentially prevent visitors to the Isle of Iona as well as being a further stealth tax on those who live there. I would urge a rethink on this as a matter of urgency and that the decision makers serve the people the say they represent.
