Great news this week: parking fees have been slashed in council car parks in the city. People are always whinging about parking fees and, I must admit, in the past I have been among them. However, of late, I thought that the price of the council car parks wasn’t too excessive and, in the current economic climate, I didn’t imagine they would do anything about reducing them. I was wrong, and that can only be good for getting visitors into the city.
Of course, the serial moaners still aren’t happy – not one of the comments to the on-line Citizen article voiced praise. Oh no, it’s still not enough: it should be £1 all day. Or free. Or, it seems, one poster won’t be happy until someone puts a big roof over the whole city so they can stay warm and dry like at Cribbs Causeway. Sometimes I despair of TIG readers.
