PEOPLE are to be consulted on plans to introduce parking charges at Gunnersbury Park and Museum next year.

Funds are needed for maintenance and ongoing improvement of the park, museum and its services.

Gunnersbury Estate, a not-for-profit organisation, has a target to raise £2m a year in income by 2022.

Though it receives funding each year from Ealing and Hounslow councils, this is currently not enough to support the entire estate.

All revenue raised from parking charges would be ring-fenced to be spent only on the park and museum.

David Bowler, CEO, said: “We feel this is an important step in helping to secure [our] financial future. “We are keen to hear what our visitors and local residents think of the proposals.

“We would encourage everyone to complete our consultation survey which runs until November 4.”
