So, the Labour council's impractical ideals at the turn of the century have inevitably finally come home to roost, if a report in the Gazette of Friday, October 31 is anything to go by.
A resident of the new flats at the old Lido cinema complains she has nowhere to park her car despite knowing about the facts that the flats had no designated parking when she signed contracts.
Extreme Labour idealists, in their attempt to stop car use, tried to get people to choose between somewhere to live but without a car, or have a car but live where they want to. Totally ridiculous, seeing that using cars is far and away the most preferred transport and like King Canute trying to stop the tide from coming in.
Instead of facilitating the public, Labour seek to control and dictate to the public how to live.
This is a recipe for upheaval and discontentment.
Absolutely no development should be allowed to go ahead without at least an equal number of parking spaces to match the number of dwellings. I think it strange with a commonsense Conservative council now in charge that there is a council employee who still operates Labour's ideals, by stating to the Gazette that the lady car owner still won't be able to get any sort of parking concession while she still lives at the Lido.
