Leader poll: If parking charges are introduced in Banbridge will it affect how you vote at the next election?

CHARGES will be introduced to three car parks in Banbridge on July 3 - but how do you feel about the Regional Development Minister’s determination to bring in the 40p per hour charge?

Do you agree with UUP Minister Danny Kennedy’s reasoning that the charge will encourage a greater turnover of car parking spaces and therefore welcome more people into the town? Or do you feel this is yet another tax on road users and will result in people deserting town centres in favour of out-of-town shopping areas with free parking?
