Plans to charge for parking Hockley Woods

Plans to charge for parking Hockley Woods filled me, and others with horror. This is a link to a council document explaining the changes being made to the Hockley Woods Main Entrance car park.
Hockley Woods Charges and Car Park Closure

Plans to charge for parking Hockley Woods

There is a gap in the revenue raised from Council Tax, and the services needed in this area. Government legislation means that the current rate of tax is capped. Therefore, to avoid sacrificing services, other ways to raise revenue are needed. This scheme to charge for parking in Hockley Woods is to raise revenue for the Council to avoid cutting services.

Hockley Woods Car Park Closed

Hockley Woods car park will be closed for approximately 5 weeks for ‘re surfacing’, which I presume allows for the marking of parking bays and the installation and commission of the parking meters. It has been mentioned that the cost of the work and meters will be around £30,000 pounds. If you know the true figure please get in touch and I will ammend my article.
I wonder if a similar plan will be enforced on Grove Woods, Gusted Hall, and Cherry Orchard Park, all becoming smaller versions of Rayleigh’s Websters Way ‘money making machine’. I did read that Websters Meadows was a gift to the people of Rayleigh. Therefore, on that basis i’m not sure how the people of Rayleigh can be made to pay to park there.
I welcome your comments and accurate information to keep others informed.

Welcome to Hockley Woods website

My Hockley Woods site is starting to grow, although not much more than a seedling at the moment!
I’ve added a ‘Links, and Friends of Hockley Woods’ page, which will contain (hopefully) useful info!
My next plans are to make the Gallery a place where people can upload their own photos.
New links created include, Fix My Street.com for reporting potholes and street lighting that doesn’t work, and the Online Focus Group.
