Can anyone tell me the reason for the closure of car park 7 please? It is the ideal car park for anybody needing to get to any of the three doctor's surgeries that surround it.

While trying to follow lock down rules and keep social distancing when having to attend a surgery, this car park was ideal.

It is outdoor parking, so helps to stop any transmission of infection between users of the car park.

I had to park illegally to gain safe access to my surgery.

The alternative is the multi storey car parks, and having to walk through the shopping centre, also a long walk for anyone who wasn't in best of health anyway.

Nobody I've asked knows the reason, but I suppose it will be for short term profit by building a little hotel, or more houses without any car parking (again).
