Accounts

The Business Group CIC, and its relationship with the Business Group

Issues we face and how best to tackle them:

  1. Parking Eye in Island Green and St Marks, can we influence those who run these car parks, if so how?
  2. Council-run car parks, overly zealous enforcement, and officers not being able to access details of online extensions.
  3. Loading/unloading, what are the rules, should there be a 10-minute window? Some traders have not been allowed to do so at all, at times
  4. Getting back “free after 3” in at least one Council car park – maybe Market Street? Already working on this, how to take it further?
  5. Business rates – what a nightmare. No short term solution, but may be worth writing joint letter to Welsh Government etc.
