This week I’m afraid I’m going to get all serious and political. Sorry.
The letters in last week’s Mercury concerning the imminent District Council consultation about car parking charges rightly focus on some of the anomalies currently seen in our car parks and local streets and the implications of the proposed charge for residents’ parking permits.
Regarding ‘Leaving borders open defies common sense’ (Mercury letters, May 9), I am deeply worried by the rumour that immigrants are stopping British people from working.
About the suggestion of the possible introduction of a charge for residents’ parking permit, I think it all depends on how much the charge is going to be.
Peter Keeble sent us this photo, hoping that Mercury readers might solve its mystery.1 comment
As the Director of Planning and Housing Services clearly states (Views sought over car park charges shake up, Mercury, May 9) ‘these are sensitive areas and the review is long overdue’.
