    How incredibly generous. NOT. Towns in South Oxfordshire offer a whole day free parking each week in December. Not to mention a hour or two hours free parking every day of the year. The greedy parking charges is why I rarely come to Newbury any more. I live north of Newbury and it's as quick to get to Didcot, Wantage, Abingdon.

      If a few quid to park is a deal breaker, the retailers are probably glad you are not going to be taking up a parking space.

        It's money that I would prefer to spend with the retailers. Fortunately many of us have a choice.

    Sod Newbury. I take most of my business elsewhere now anyway. Fed up with being ripped off with every aspect of West Berkshire Council. Just feel sorry for the small traders who suffer because of the council's punitive actions on the general public resulting in people feeling completely ripped off. Council tax way above inflation, cutting essential public services, hiking parking charges way beyond rate of inflation, charging to dispose of household waste when it's all included in Council Tax. Introducing new charges to park in places that were previously free and the list goes on and on yet they are looking to possibly increase council by a huge rate again this coming April and cutting yet more public services and wheres all the money going ??? We're seeing no benefit at all! You can't see a doctor when you need one, there's a shortage of police on the street, our school kids are suffering because of huge cuts and over subscription hospitals are over stretched and on and on..

      Yes indeed, Tory voters in Newbury certainly got more of the Austerity they voted for both locally and nationally. The question is: Just how much worse does it have to get before voters change their alliance away from the 'Nasty Party'?
