Just within the regulations

I WRITE to tell you about the proposed car parking charges that will come into force on April 11 throughout North Somerset.

I WRTIE to tell you about the proposed car parking charges that will come into force on April 11 throughout North Somerset.

I see that the council is clearly just within the regulations regarding advertising these in Grove Park car park. Last year I told the council I was dismayed to see that the notice was placed near to the machine by the toilets in such a manner that a dog could read it. I mentioned this because it was placed close to the ground and not at eye level but ankle level to a human.

I was told it would not happen this year but it seems it has.

When I lived in Bristol and happened to be on a tenants committee we had close working relations with the city council. I and others were told any proposed alteration or changes to parking and other matters had to be advertised via a notice situated close to or on the site in question and also had to be placed in a prominent position so members of the public could read it.

North Somerset Council seems to be just within those guidelines. Yes, it has displayed the notice on the site in question but I and others cannot read it unless I get on my knees and even then it is difficult as part of the notice is obscured. Come on North Somerset, do the job properly.
