Windsor’s short term onstreet metered parking

Posted by davidburbage on April 16, 2007

The (current) Leader writes to the Observer about our proposal to remove the trivially small charges that the Borough inconveniances residents with at the parking meters.

Apparently, the 10p and 20p charges have been keeping 103,000 people away from parking on the town’s streets! What nonsense.

I am amused that they have taken the “criticise and condemn” route rather than adopt a “me too bandwagon” approach, especially with such a good idea.

 Oh well, I am sure they have convinced themselves that their fate at the ballot box will be enhanced by trenchant opposition, so good luck with that …..
