OH! Cllr Gethyn Davies.
I would love to buy you a can of deodorant for your uncaring attitude because it stinks. With an election coming soon it’s no way to talk to your constituents, saying pay up and shut up.
Having read recently what councillors get paid it may not worry you. I’m disabled and rely on my daughter to shop for me and get my prescriptions. She was drenched going to the meter and to the car, then the chemist. She was then asked to come back later, and it cost another 40p. Do you have meters at the council offices?
There were certainly no parking problems in the car park on Friday. There were only a handful of cars in there.
Drivers park anywhere, now even in our road, and walk to town.
This whinger asks if taxpayers will now get a decrease in council tax? I don’t think so.
M. Brown, Springmeadow, Lydney.

M Brown - if you don’t stop complaining, you could soon see your street getting resident parking permits at a hefty annual charge. then you will be done at both ends.

Always wondered how resident only street parking permits work. Always thought under various Housing Acts, Highway Acts and Town and Country Planning Acts that public highways are exactly that, public highways. Since public highways in the county are administered by the county council at taxpayers cost, how can a district council decide who can and who can’t park on it.

I’m currently in Sydney and advise a balanced approach to parking in heavily urbanised areas. Residents, disabled and visitors should be catered for. Here people buy land or garages and then let to non-residents, thereby diminishing the available spaces to residents. My daughter-in-law has to park 1/4 mile away sometimes. Difficult when you’re with a toddler and shopping.
