Ever since Royal Parks decided they wanted to introduce car park charges to Bushy Park there has been a lot of people fighting against it.
Now a petition has reached nearly 1,000 signatures calling for the charges to be scrapped.
Here are the proposed charges:
Monday – Saturday £1.40 per hour to a maximum of 6 hours
Sunday £2.0 per hour to a maximum of 6 hours

This petition was started by Mary Ann Ellery.
She said: “This is an indefensible proposal, particularly at a time when the link between poverty, obesity and poor health has been so clearly highlighted by the impact of Covid 19.
“Spending time in the park is one of the very few free and healthy options for families and individuals. It is essential for people’s mental and physical wellbeing that access to the parks is encouraged rather than restricted. If, as a society, we really want to fight obesity we must continue to provide spaces for free and healthy exercise.”
