I feel better about it now I know that you can park free if you are a member of the National trust, because I support and encourage their work, and that seems to make most sense.

I suppose I just hanker after the old days when Cookham was a smaller village, and not so much a tourist attraction.
But then again it is the history of the village that protects it at the same time.....hopefully.

Oh no - what a disaster. Understandable perhaps but I am sure many will feel so sorry for all those groups and individuals who will have prepared so hard for the event only for it to be cancelled with such short notice. Perhaps I can partially represent 'the many' by saying a huge 'thank you' to all who were anticipating being on parade for the villagers this evening.

I believe National Trust members will continue to be able to park free of charge, either by displaying a windscreen sticker or inserting their membership card into the machine in the same way that some council parking machines work with Advantage Cards.

I just feel VERY sorry for the Cookham's, seeing the character of the area being eroded by very poor design. Its a village, and used to have a really nice feel to it.. now its starting to look like a stage set for 'The Only Way Is Essex' !

Really? I mean, seriously? Do you realise how ludicrous that whole statement sounds?

I walk to work from the rise to the village and I see a fair number of commuters walking from the village to the station but the Moor car park is virtually empty.  Whilst I do not support the NT charging, I dont agree it's urbanisation, there are many NT car parks in far more rural areas such as the  Lake District and the Yorks Moors that charge and have ticket machines.

I agree with you Fiona Beaumont I hate this urbanisation! I just see it as an opportunity to make money. Being the cynic that I am the upgrading of the car park was just the start Im sure it was all pre planned.

Well said Watchman!

I wonder at times if these people (planners and Cllrs) lack 'common sense' !

Cookham is a village - not a sprawled out part of Maidenhead or even Bournend (I see Bournend postings on this board now). Its really sad to see how fast things can change, not for the better either.

I also noticed that the Doggy Day Care by the Tack Shop is well established now, with concrete thrown down, lots of cars parked up... and horrible urban fencing and random building placed on site. But no planning?

Wonder how long it will be before housing goes on... and then that's another field ear-marked for a few rows of houses... and our planners and Cllrs are too short sighted to see... and by that point it will be too late because the precedent is already set !

no normal 'House Holder' could / would dare to do such a thing.... so how do these land owners get away with it ?
