Parking charge increase to go ahead despite Broadstone petition

Planned parking charge increases will go ahead this March despite protests from Broadstone councillors. Liberal Democrat councillors Mike Brooke and Vikki Slade campaigned against Poole Council’s decision, as they say the increases could stop people visiting the village to shop. The petition reached almost 3,000 signatures, enough for the original vote to be reviewed, but Poole’s Conservative Cabinet did not change their decision.
