It seemed that Fort William had parking charges and most of Highland region did not this effects the locals and council staff too after moving to the new office.
Before you say it, the council leased 3 offices and now use there own building, making a saving.
Highland council has no money, there have been huge cuts to staff and services, toilets for example etc.
Inverness seems to fear better with investment than the outer reaches of Highland district.
This will be the future I think, just like the lake district and almost any town in England, you just have to pay something.
Money for tourist infrastructure has to come from somewhere, council or government and tourists should pay something towards it, I pay council tax.
