The introduction of extra car parking charges would further reduce the number of customers, employees and viability of retail businesses in the above town centres. Consequently business rate income will reduce as will retail choice offered resulting in less footfall. No economic assessment has been carried out in a rural area where car usage is essential as no reliable public service transport network is available. Only 14% of households do not have a car and many of those will be town dwellers.
