Is it true that ESCC want to charge residents to park in Neville, Landport and Malling??! If so then I hope the new Town Councillors will resist this punitive tax?!

If they do this on the Neville, where are all those people who work at County Hall going to park ?

@Mr Forks. I haven't seen or heard anything about this yet. I have been speaking to ESCC about other parking issues on behalf of the residents of St.Thomas' in Cliffe and I have asked John Robbins (Project Manager of ESCC Parking Review) when the conclusions of the ongoing Parking Review will be published publically. He reckons around June, but you could call him on 482236 to see what is being considered at this stage. Cheers - Matt

They surely wouldn`t dare! I had this in London and the way they work it is to start in central areas who appreciate being given cheap parking. That moves parking outwards so as to put pressure on the next band of residents until finally they inflict an intolerable situation on the ones at the edge who are simply taxed to park where they parked anyway for nothing. At each stage a " Consultation", is held at a point when it can only produce one answer. Even if you have a drive as we do they get you every time anyone visits.
The thing to do is to resist together and early they will keep everything as quiet as possible and you will find at no stage is the overall plan made clear.
There is no mandate for any such additional taxation, which is all it is, but don`t wait until they get to you it requires a united front of non -cooperation and the identification of those who are responsible ensuring they personally suffer. All too often a nice little earner running the new fat empire awaits.It will be called " Environmental ...something" and pay some fat fool to sit around issuing leaflets coloured green. John Robbins is it ?
How happy one feels about t Green Councillor being responsible for the interests of motorists I am far from certain. Travellers yes . Motorists ..we`ll see

PS .. where did you hear that Mr. Forks ?

Just a reminder to point out that the consultations were entirely inadequate. Sufficient notice not given (and in the case of Barcombe no notice at all) and the consultation carried out by a company with close historic links to the administrators of the scheme

Well, there's a turn-up for the books - a Paul Newman comment I agree with 95%.

Same here Clifford - I also agree with PN. I think we all know in our heart of hearts that ESCC don't give a stuff about the people they represent or the views of the majority. They will, yet again, ride rough shod over us all.
