Ashton court parking charge proposal

Additional Information

Plans to charge for parking at a historic attraction near Bristol have been described as a "tax on health".

Thousands of people every week visit the Ashton Court Estate, which boasts a stately home and acres of parkland.

Liberal Democrat-controlled Bristol City Council is looking to charge £1 per car as part of measures to balance its budget.

People will opt to park for free in local residential streets in Long Ashton and Leigh Woods to avoid the parking charges.

Nigel Moorcroft, chairman of Long Ashton Parish Council, has said: “We are against the whole ethos of car parking in Ashton Court. The estate is for the benefit of the whole community and therefore the idea of introducing car-parking charges flies in the face of this principle.”
