New plans for disabled parking?

WESTON S mayor wants to revamp the system for providing disabled parking spaces around the area.

WESTON'S mayor wants to revamp the system for providing disabled parking spaces around the area.

Councillor John Ley Morgan spoke at a town council meeting to highlight his ideas.

He said: "I have had an increasing concern over the seven or so years I have been on the council about the number of disabled parking bays around the town. Every month there is another three or four and possibly as many as 50 a year.

"Don't get me wrong I have no quarrel with the system and think it is entirely right that drivers with mobility problems should have the extra consideration that enables them to park as close to their property as possible.

"The problem with the system is that these bays are never taken out again - putting additional pressure on other people who need to park in a particular area."

Cllr Ley Morgan wants to introduce a new system where at the end of the year a renewal notice will be sent out with a requirement to pay an administration fee, which he suggests could be around £10 per month. That way the town council will know if the space is no longer in use.
