More resource for local parking schemes after Lib Dem amendment

A Liberal Democrat budget amendment was agreed by St Albans District Council last night which would provide an additional staff member to help with the enormous backlog of parking schemes.

Lib Dem parking spokesperson Gerard McHale said: ‘Again we proposed this last year and were defeated – so we are pleased that it went through  this time.

‘There is a huge appetite for sorting out parking schemes, from the introduction of new controlled parking zones to dealing with very specific  instances like disabled parking bays.

‘A particular problem is parking by commuters – both those using the stations and those driving  into town centres. Hopefully the extra resource can speed up the delivery of schemes where local people have been demanding action.’
