Some fairly major electricity work was carried out in the town during January. This meant that company vans were parked in the High Street for a considerable time. Are they ‘immune’ to parking regulations? – we really don’t know the position.
But, you won’t be surprised to learn that quite a few of the original paving blocks have ‘gone missing’. They’ve been replaced by patches of tarmac. That’s because the county council isn’t strict enough on contractors. It also makes a mockery of the borough council’s plan to harmonise the appearance of the ‘public realm’.
