Save Our Shops (SOS) – Regional press coverage

The Save Our Shops (SOS) campaign, led by Residents’ Associations from across Havering, has received regional press coverage, as the headline story in the most recent edition (27 June) of the East London Enquirer newspaper. The story has also been featured in their online edition, which covers East London and the west of Essex.

Upminster and Cranham Residents’ Association councillors are urging local residents to join a Public Protest calling for the return of the free 30-minute parking in Upminster and Hornchurch, on Wednesday 10th July at 6.45pm in the Romford Town Hall Car Park, immediately before the July Full Council Meeting. Further details can be found here.

Please come along and help show Havering’s current Administration that they must see sense and reinstate the free 30-minute parking, if our local shops and businesses are to thrive in to the future.

  1. Haviing lived in Upminster for 35 years, I like to support our local shops, I feel you have made this impossible since you have changed the parking fees. I know lots of my companions feel the same way about having to pay for parking for just half an hour.

  2. Dear Rosemary,

    Thank you for your comment.

    I would just like to reiterate that the local Upminster and Cranham Residents’ Associaition councillors, together with most of the others in Havering, voted against getting rid of the free 30-minute parking. It was the current Conservative administration, supported by three Harold Wood councillors who voted for it. That is why we have launched the SOS – Save Our Shops campaign to bring it back.

    Kind regards

    Cllr John Tyler
