Regular readers of the Bearwood e-Bulletin may remember that a couple of months ago I called on the Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods to review the car parking charges on the Bearwood bus station car park, with a view to getting rid of the charges altogether.
Well, today I can confirm a success – of a kind!
In a report going from officers to the Cabinet Advisory Team for Neighbourhoods meeting this Friday the Cabinet Member is being urged to not only review the car parking charges – but to double them!!!
Well that should be a resounding success. The picture above was taken at 11.am on a Monday morning. Two cars are crammed on to the bus station car park! If the fees are doubled, we might actually be able to clear the space entirely and send even more cars on to the already crowded residential streets.
