Chippenham Town Council has expressed their disappointment after car parking proposals were rejected.
One of the car parking scheme ideas was to introduce free car parking in all public car parks in Chippenham after 3pm on one day a week. It was suggested to trial the idea for ten weeks running up to Christmas.
The other idea was for Wiltshire Council to work with businesses and Cherish Chippenham Ltd to introduce concessionary car parking scheme in the town which would benefit local businesses and other users.
Wiltshire Council rejected the ideas despite Chippenham Town Council stating the schemes would be aiming for 'increasing footfall to the town centre'.
In a statement released by Chippenham Town Council it said: "Rejection of the proposals has caused dismay."
