I have recently read in a number of comments concerning Keynsham car park charges,and the fact that with the revelopment the golden oportunity to create new free parking on the back of this is sadly,in my view not on the agenda, writes Andy Halliday
As both a Lib Dem, and a former Town Councillor, I was optimistic that this subject would be reconsidered by the"listening council".
It was a topic often referred to in the by election at which I gained my seat, and in many subsequent street vists I made in the Keynsham South ward over the last 12/18 months.
Why should our town be treated any differently to Midsomer Norton,Radstock and other areas enjoying free parking opportunities?
This golden opportunity, which many residents, traders, and I would hope visitors would welcome alongside the new town centre redevelopments must be grasped in order to boost our town's local ecomomy and use of great local facilities,and visitor potential.
I appreciate my small voice counts for not much, but I do I know echo the sentiments of many who may feel less inclined to write to your website,but I do feel it is short-sighted to ignore the pleas of many who I know share my concerns.
