It's really not about the cost for me, although we did attempt it get it lowered or free for Archive volunteers who work on cataloguing projects, etc. and the lower paid Archives staff who don't have access to the staff car park. It's more of the principle of it. The site was designed and built with more than ample parking space for both visitors and staff. They chose to turn that into landscaping and duck ponds and deliberately make parking difficult. Especially when they know there are plenty of regular visitors that travel long distances from rural locations. If I continue with my research business in the New Year, I will have to put up prices to cover not only the parking charges but, what is more of a problem, the increasing difficulty in accessing enough documents in a day to make the work viable. I may have to stop copying parts of documents too as this is much more time consuming and for less income. At the moment I'm thinking of increasing charges to 10p a page but a bigger jump in the minimum charge per document, perhaps to 5 or 6 pounds minimum. Need to consider it carefully over the coming weeks.
