A recent borough council “milestone” is to “Increase car parks occupancy levels in line with Town Centre growth.”
Now it’s not clear whether this means to provide more car parking, or to increase the use of existing car parks, as the town grows. If the former, we wonder about what we think is the council’s policy, namely that new housing in the town centre should NOT have its own car parking. If the latter, we come back to the age old chestnut of improving access to the existing car parks. In particular, Main Square multi-storey car park.
We’ve grown weary of suggesting ways of speeding access to Main Square car park in busy times. So we regard any apparent objective to increase occupancy levels as mere words, and not a genuine intent.
