Parking breakthrough meeting

Members of the local Metered Parking action group had a successful first meeting on 18th November with Robert Booth the Director of Land Services and his roads staff.

They have described the talks as a ‘breakthrough’ in their attempts to improve the parking regime for Woodside residents and businesses.

Every one of the points listed in the group’s alternative plan was discussed and apparently the officials were sympathetic and constructive in what was a 2 and 1/4 hour meeting.

The talks are planned to continue up to the proposed full review of the parking scheme due in February or March 2006.
