KEEP VICTORIA EMBANKMENT FREE FROM PARKING CHARGES AND ORDERS

We the undersigned petition the council to PLEASE STOP/REJECT THE PARKING ORDER - 2015 (OSP 8017). and adopt other more sensitive, low key approaches to deter any misuse of the public Open Space. This ORDER will simply penalise Genuine Park Users and encourage and validate Commuter Parking.

Victoria Embankment Nottingham is "not for profit" land, given to the Citizens of Nottingham and the Locality (including visitors from further afield) for their mental and physical health & well-being All Cities need these breathing spaces and the Embankment provides such an Oasis where we can escape ALL the pressures of life, including time pressures and financial pressures. This Breathing Space should remain as it is, an oasis of unpressurised serenity. Despite some cars abusing the facility there is still plenty of space for Park Users to park up free and enjoy the various simple Green Spaces the amenity provides. The intended purpose and ethos of this highly protected Covenanted Breathing Space, all Gifted to the City and Citizens of Nottingham by benefactors, must be preserved from becoming another Income Generating Parking Scheme. It will be highly detrimental to impose a Parking Order on this historic Park and for it to be used as a 'solution' to other unrelated problems.
