Scheme should go to private contractor

If this is such a good idea for Whitby why are just a few selected people being asked to pay for it.

I believe that on the contrary this is a very good idea for the county council to make money from these selected people on top of any monies they will surely accrue from a park and ride scheme.

So instead of gathering extra monies from these selected few why not give the whole park and ride contract to a private contractor who would be amply pleased with the profit from the scheme without also robbing the Whitby citizens.

If this scheme does go ahead Whitby council tax payers should be provided with free parking permits.
