Pedestrianisation – Shaftesbury Shopkeeper Demands Free Parking But MP Is Unconvinced

Shaftesbury’s Member of Parliament, Simon Hoare, shares his verdict on our town’s temporary High Street pedestrianisation.

Our MP tells us why he is unconvinced that free spaces will make a difference. Listen at 9:11.
