In reply to MM0FMF:
£10 sounds a little steep. Perhaps it’s an attempt
to reduce the numbers of chavs on the hill?
That I doubt Andy - that kind of person always seems to have the funds for parking. Unfortunately high parking charges are a tax on the responsible people that would prefer to put their money into decent clothing and equipment for a safe day out in the hills.
As for where the money goes, I’m sure that it doesn’t directly translate into improved paths and maintenance work - that would be too simple!
It will be interesting to see what effect the increased charge has on parking at Pen y Pass and also whether the free parking spots in the area become more crowded - or worse still become endowed with a parking meter of their own!
