Parking Machine Smashed in Gosport

Published: 9th May 2018 12:03

Vandals have caused around £4,000 of damage to a parking machine in Gosport, less than a month after it was repaired following a similar attack.

The pay-and-display machine in Alver Valley East car park was smashed up over the bank holiday weekend, probably on Sunday night. The damage is believed to be the result of a failed attempt to get to the cash box.

Cllr Mark Hook, who leads Gosport Borough Council, said: "This machine had only come back into service less than a month ago. There are two machines in the car park and earlier, both of them were attacked and had to be repaired. Fortunately, this time only one was damaged.

"If anyone knows anything about this incident, please let our Streetscene team know on 08000 198598."

Surely, the repair costs exceed revenues. The council might wish to consider making the car park free as it is probably only used by local residents who also pay their council taxes to fund the community.
