THE vitality and commercial health of Worthing are strongly affected by car parking conditions.
Our 10 car parks are administered by three private companies, which derive their income from the public by providing public services, as sub-contractors to Worthing Borough Council.
Full details of the revenue and expenditure of these companies should be readily available and open to questions by the public, as the companies operate in the public domain.
Do our parking schemes cost too much to administer?
The fundamental need is to avoid parking stagnation; other factors are peripheral, though not necessarily irrelevant.
