Hornchurch, resident and business owner, Barry Major has created a new petition for car parking charges on change.org

The original petition had over 11 thousand signatures but was closed as it the creator was told it did not comply with the statutory requirements.

Even though the new petition was created less then 24 hours ago it already has over 1,000 followers

We spoke to Barry Major:

The new petition is a statutory petition that the council cannot choose to ignore unlike the last one. This was something a lady I know called Jill Graham realised after trawling lots of havering council laws and then she got in touch with me to help promote it. The plan is to submit this petition and resubmit my petition with it just to show the level of upset.

The petition can be found at change.org
