Meanwhile from Angus more proof that parking charges in small towns are a very bad idea in the 2019 retail environment

So it's 2019 and we're still scheduled for parking charges this year unless Highland Council have a rethink. Over in Angus where parking charges were introduced in all the local towns from Nov 1 last year, trading has been devastated according to local business owners, not as much money as anticipated is coming in from the meters and it has been suggested that the charges scheme there might lose money after costs are taken into account. It's changing times for retail and High Streets face new challenges, throwing in parking charges to the small town trading environment mix during these turbulent times is completely reckless.
