£13.50 parking?


I am appalled at the University’s recent move to double the price of a student car parking permit to £115. When I started my undergraduate degree in 2003 I paid £13.50 for my first permit — an increase of almost 800% in seven years. I appreciate the University wants to be seen to be encouraging the use of public transport but instead of taxing those who can least afford it perhaps they should consider making a deal with the bus companies and improving facilities for cyclists to really make a difference to their carbon footprint.
