Parking – have your say

We’re all pretty annoyed by the new parking proposals. So let’s do something about it…

Published on January 19th 2007.

Parking – have your say

Ok ok, so by now we’ve gathered that we’re all pretty p*ssed off with the proposed parking regulations.

So instead of all mopesing around moaning about it, we thought it was time to get proactive.

The council claim to care what Manchester’s residents think. As part if their caring image, they are claiming to be holding a public consultation on the parking issue –meaning that if enough people stand up to their ridiculous proposals then they may reconsider.

Well, it’s worth a shot.

Log onto Manchester Confidential on Monday and you will find a petition system, whereby at the click of a button you will be able to send an email to the relevant people at the council.

To make sure that the Council gets the message, we will also print off each and every email and present them in person at the Town Hall before the consultation deadline of January 26th.

In the mean time though, we thought we’d have a little fun. We have emailed each member of the council’s executive committee, and asked them the following questions. Just to help us put the whole issue into context, you see.

1) Do you live within the affected zones in the City Centre?
2) Do you work or own a business within those zones?
3) Do you own a motor car?
4) When attending council meetings do you travel by public transport, or use your motor car?
5) If you use your motor car, where do you park?

Here is the number of replies that we have received to date: 0

Of course, as soon as we do get a reply we’ll let you know.

Tune in on Monday folks, to make your voice heard!
