In advance of the Council Meeting Thursday 8 March when parking control will be discussed, there are two poster campaigns in the areas of Leigh and Chalkwell which is blighted by parking issues.
A group of fed-up residents are campaigning for a solution that will meet the concerns of the residents and the shopkeepers.
The alternative message from some campaigning shopkeepers is in support of the status quo and this of course means that they are unwilling to address the concerns of the residents upon whom they depend to make a living.
Is this wise? Is this fair?
Our representatives in the Council will decide.
There is no poster campaign for the commuters who are unhappy about paying to park in the car park provided for them at Leigh Station. This is a related problem that must be addressed urgently with some joined-up thinking by the councilours.
Are they up for the task or will they sit on their hands?
