Giving back the streets of Windsor

Posted by davidburbage on March 1, 2008

We got some great national coverage today on our soon-to-take-effect plans to remove yellow lines from the streets of Windsor.

The Daily Mail ran a good piece today on p35 and quoted Cllr Tom Bursnall who has been doing a great deal of work finding out the best solution to parking in the narrow and restricted roads of Windsor.

These 5 (sequential) comments made my day :

I don’t believe it – at last a town hall that is not looking at the cash cow motorists – well done you Tories.

– Bk, Bristol

Please, please let this idea spread…

– Ian, Benfleet, UK

Good heavens, an outbreak of common sense!

– Dave, Basingstoke, UK

What an enlightened attitude. Why can’t more Councils think along these lines? Cheltenham is more likely, apparently, to increase the amount of double-yellow lines and thereby reduce the spaces available for on-street parking (this according to a Lib-Dem spokesperson). I guess that’s what you get when you vote in Lib-Dem or Labour councillors. The Conservative Party will get my vote at the next elections.

Thanks goodness. Is sanity finally returning to the UK? Dare we all hope?
