One of the results of having a District Council where most of us councillors have grey hair (if we have any hair at all) is that very few of us have small children.
Currently the “very few” consists of Phil and Tracy Capon. It was Tracy who asked the council officers some months ago to look at the possibility of having some “Parent and Child” bays in our car parks.
Well, they’ve prepared a report on this, it comes up for debate on Tuesday night, and the officers are recommending… doing nothing. Apparently there are some spaces that could be widened into Parent and Child bays, but it would cost an estimated ?500 per bay (!) to adjust them, and then it might be a problem that they might be left empty when they could be occupied by non-parents.
Chris is on this committee. Any thoughts on what he should say? Is it prudent for the council to do nothing, or is this a sign of the council being out-of-touch?
