Over the last few months Labour campaigned against the previous administration’s plans to enforce a pavement-parking ban. As you can see from the Coalition’s February Cabinet report, 2.1 states there’d be “exemptions of certain roads”.
However Labour has continued to peddle the sneaky lie that the local Coalition was bringing a “town-wide scheme”. [See agenda item 7, Labour's June Cabinet report, 4th last bullet point under Regeneration, Planning & Transport]
As I said above, the Coalition was going to have exceptions – for roads too narrow for emergency vehicles or dustcarts to drive unless cars park partly on the kerb - so was Labour just opposing to be awkward?
How long will it take Labour to realise they shouldn't support illegal parking; and that sensible enforcement is what the electorate want?
