Free car parks in Lincolnshire towns will not be resurfaced if charges are introduced
FREE car parks in East Lindsey won't be resurfaced if proposals to introduce charging are approved.
East Lindsey District Council will decide whether to bring in a number of changes to the car parks they run at the full council meeting in January.
The proposal includes introducing charges after the first hour at car parks which are currently free to park all day.
Alwyn Drewery, from North Somercotes, told Louth Town Council he hoped the cattle market car park, which is part of the proposals, will be brought up to standard if the council want people to pay to park there.

He said: "It is really uneven but people accept that because it is free to park there. Now they want to charge, are they going to resurface it? On health and safety grounds, Queen Street car park would not be in the state the cattle market is. This car park is for the majority of people who work in the town. East Lindsey should be made to upgrade it to the standard of other public car parks."
Mr Drewery also objected to the loss of a free all-day parking facility, stating it will cost his son who has a part-time job in Louth, £720 a year to park.
A spokesman from East Lindsey District Council said all the free car parks which are part of the proposals will remain as they are.
There are no plans to resurface them, or introduce parking bays on Louth cattle market.
Parking permits are available, including weekly at £9, monthly £30, quarterly at £80.
Annual parking permits, which can be used across the district, are £200.
