Pay on exit parking won’t be coming to Dorchester for another year.
The news has broken this morning.
West Dorset District Council’s Head of parking had promised pay on exit for the county town by the end of the month.
Phil Gordon is the Director of Projects for Dorchester BID;
“We were very much looking forward to a time when people could come and park and not have to scamper back to their car when their ticket ran out. To have a delay on this is very disappointing but as always the town’s shops and businesses will make the best of the situation as it has been for the last many, many years. I just hope the delay isn’t as long as a year.”
