Request for Tunbridge Wells Borough Council to extend the period that unused visitors parking permits can be used due exceptional circumstances of covid

We the undersigned petition Tunbridge Wells Borough Council to extend the period that visitors parking permits can be used past the usual one year period, due to the exceptional circumstances of covid, meaning that most people did not receive visitors for several months of the year.

Tunbridge Wells Borough Council have refused to extend visitors parking permits past the one year mark despite the fact that most residents have not been able to use these due to the fact that most residents have not received visitors for a large part of the year. Supermarkets, day trips out and holiday companies have all extended the time that vouchers can be used, so how is it ok for a local council not to do so? Is it not enough that many Tunbridge Wells residents have to pay for parking permits in the first place.
