In response to recent calls to remove Sunday parking charges at the city centre car parks in Dunfermline, Liberal Democrat Councillor for Dunfermline South James Calder is putting forward a motion to the next Dunfermline Area Committee on 5th February to look into the possibility of scrapping the charges.
Councillor James Calder has said, “With other towns and cities nearby not having Sunday parking charges, it seems ludicrous that Dunfermline is scoring an own goal by having them.
“As a result of recent calls, I have agreed with other local councillors that the charges should be scrapped. I’m pleased to have worked across party lines to put forward a motion to the Dunfermline Area Committee to look towards scrapping these charges.
“I hope when the motion comes to Committee that Councillors can all agree to proceed with it. This means that we will stop penalising and instead start listening to local businesses and communities who agree we should scrap Sunday parking charges.”
