Cardiff, Parking and Extortion

I’ve commented before on the extortionate cost of parking in Cardiff – and the latest round of car park increases are insane – 80p for each 15 minutes – so thats over £3 an hour now.  I think I’ll be doing far more of my shopping at Cribbs Causeway in Bristol, even with the bridge tolls and petrol, 3 hours parking in Cardiff now costs more than going to Bristol’s out-of-town Mall, which has better shops, is undercover, isn’t a total building site.

Cardiff Council – do something about this.  You’re building a modern new shopping centre – but once you’ve finished you’ll have driven all the customers away.
