POLITICIANS have vowed to fight parking charges to ease pressure on traders.

Labour Party members announced a team to represent Northumberland Heath at the 2010 council elections.

Their priority would be to cut short-term car parking charges.

The three candidates are Belvedere councillor Daniel Francis, former councillor Geoffrey Hacker and former Belvedere forum chair, Janet White.

Mr Hacker said: "We have listened to traders who are complaining about the hike in prices and are determined to fight for cheaper short stay car parking charges in Bexley council's car parks."

Parking charges for up to one hour in the Mill Road, Northumberland Heath car park are currently 60p, a threefold increase in three years.
