With reference to paying parking fees for Honiton Hospital and surgery. Once again the elderly, sick, vulnerable and rural people are going to be hit with this proposed parking fee.It is a case of the few selfish people who park in the hospital car park that are not using hospital facilities. These people have spoilt this facility for the majority of folk who need to use that car park.This means car drivers will be finding places in adjoining roads, angering local residents, who already have had to cope with the new surgery building works.I do so hope those that are sitting in cosy offices making the rules do not need the surgery or hospital in a hurry and have no change for the car parking meters.Elizabeth ThurgoodCombe Water Cotleigh
