Conservatives Motorist Vote-Winning, Veering All Over The Road

Another day, another car-related story from the road-obsessed Borough Council.

After spinning the possibility of cutting the car parking charges in two town centre locations, the council confirmed it. They then however, have deferred, until today, deciding on changes to residents parking in streets off Commercial Road.

Rather like CSI : Crime Scene Investigation, the council then spun off the same story to a different location and former mayor, Mike Bawden called for cuts in the car parking charges for Old Town.

But cracks have appeared in the plans for cuts, with Councillor Nick Martin asking where the money will come from to pay for it.

Swindon Centric Says ; Couldn't they use the vast amount of money they claim to have saved by closing the Groundwell Park & Ride?

Swindon Centric Equation : Closing Park & Ride + Cutting Town Centre Car Park Charges ÷ Changing Residents Parking Permits = Integrated Transport Policy.
