IT WAS with great amusement that I read an article under the heading, councils parking survey for future planning which referred to a parking study in Locking Castle.

IT WAS with great amusement that I read an article under the heading, Councils parking survey for future planning' which referred to a parking study in Locking Castle.

It was around 2001 when the residents of the new St Georges became concerned about the proposed North Somerset Courthouse, and raised its concerns over the allotted spaces for parking at the court. During the planning meetings which took place we were assured many times that more than enough parking was available, and that no street parking would be needed.

In the years that have followed there have been many occasions when the parking has been chaos. I have witnessed lorries passing the wrong side of keep left bollards, police vehicles parked on pavements, and more.

We even have parking in lanes that approach traffic signals.

It would appear that if authority chiefs listened to its residents, there would be no need for surveys, presumably paid for b the taxpayers.
