No - not about Brexit but the now to be implemented new parking arrangements for BRS CPZ.
Having just written a message about this and it having disappeared somehow and not feeling like writing it all out again I would just like to ask, once again, as to why the majority of people voted for the extension of hours to this scheme. Having done two recces this morning which took me round the block (Braemar, Griffin to Mafeking, Mafeking, end of Mafeking to Ealing Road, Ealing Road back to Braemar) I can say that there were many, many free spaces all round. One example - Braemar at 10.30a.m. (existing time of CPZ) 27 and at 11.40a.m. (in new time) 24.
Just what do you think you have achieved through doing this other than making life more expensive for those with visitors, those needing carers and for delivery drivers? Did you think it through that you will now have to pay for two hours on the Visitor passes if you have a visitor at those times (currently 80p and hour, could go up to 1.00). Did you have any other thought in your head other than maximising the chances of parking outside your own front door?
On top of this it seems that the existing signage is to be amended and not changed which I can only image may well look pretty tatty and do nothing to add to the street scene.
