Villagers' Drive To Keep Parking Free
MOMENTUM is gathering among residents determined to keep the car park on Llanfairfechan promenade a free facility.

The car park is currently the subject of a review to see what the best way would be to run it in the future.

One of the options is to make it pay and display, but this has incensed ocals who believe this would lead to a loss of visitors to the prom and nearby nature reserve, severely impacting on local businesses.

A petition is now being circulated, and one of the main organisers, Geoff Shepherd, said. "The petition is going very well, so much so that we have had to have more sheets printed.

"People would be upset if charges were introduced there. I know a lot of eldely people who live at the top of the village who drive down to enjoy the prom and it would not be fair to tax them on that.

'It would also hit visitors to the area at a time when we're trying to encourage people to come here and boost business."
