  2. "Are the charges intended to make a profit?

    No, we are only charging sufficient to recover the costs of operating and maintaining the car park. We will review the costs and charges annually, and adjust the charges accordingly."

    Yeah, so that's costs of over £1000 a day - over £365'000 a year? Do one you bullshite'ing nurds. This is a National resource as in 'of the people, for the people'. Charge the foreigners? Charge people who park there and don't use the PRO. As you will have to register your car's index to park, at least give Nationals 12 free days a year.

    So they’re gonna build me a London Tube station at the end of my road that links to Kew?

    Perhaps people should charge the PRO for holding data on their relatives and a royalty for every time they're accessed :evil:

    I feel very sorry for the residents in local streets.

  3. Isn't TNA inside one of these London environmental tax zones? I stopped going because driving was awkward enough without funding the modern GLC.
