Campaigning from Opposition
Challenging unfair parking charges
Rushmoor Labour Group
In November 2017, Rushmoor Labour Group became aware of masses of complaints about private parking operators locally, so they carried out a survey and over half the responses were about Smart Parking, the parking provider at Aldershot Centre for Health. They set up a petition which called on Aldershot Centre for Health to provide parking that puts patients first attracted over 2,250 signatures. This was followed up with a YouTube video about the issue and the Labour Group submitted a report to a Rushmoor Borough Council attended by NHS Property Services. This resulted in Smart Parking being sacked from providing parking due to a poor service at Aldershot Centre for Health earlier this year.
