Why are parking charges so high?

Help

Paying to park is becoming more and more commonplace with traders claiming it is driving customers away from town centres.

BBC Inside Out has visited Eastbourne, in East Sussex, where the pay-to-park scheme is about to be extended, while in Folkestone, Kent, it is causing anger among traders.

BBC Inside Out is broadcast on Monday, 3 December on BBC One at 19:30 GMT and for seven days on the iPlayer thereafter.
