I’m responding to your article Easter Parking fines rile residents. The fines were not just at Easter; there have been fines for months causing grief for locals who have been parking ‘nose in’ there for years.
There is very little parking at New Brighton and to further reduce it with parallel parking is crazy. The residents who complain must be recent arrivals as we have all co-existed happily for many years until recently.
Just because someone buys a house on a street does not mean they own the whole street; and for Council to rush in to change parking rules without consulting the other regular users of the street is high-handed and just plain wrong.
There is a petition for the return to nose-in parking available at the Newy store. Please sign it and we will take it to Council and try to change their mind.
It is worth noting that our petition notice on the fence has been ripped down a number of times.
