It's a shame that the Lewisham Council approach to everything is so limited - there appears to be no room for initiative or creative solutions.

Problem - Perry Value car park can't be free because from experience it was packed full of commuter cars by 8.30am every day (though some of these might have been people working in FH). These days it's empty for most of the day (aside from the Streetcars based there and FH Cars cabs emptying their ashtrays) and thus largely a waste of space.

Suggestion - why not have 80% of the spaces left as free (gratis, rather than empty) all day for commuter use and 20% pay and display (with the first 30 mins free) to allow people to come and go or pick things up from the sorting office? That would alleviate some of the stress on surrounding roads, make better use of the car park and still leave it as an option for more local people during the day.
