Confirmation of U-turn

Further to my article (& updates) Labour's Clayfield Copse Clanger it is good to see the report to the forthcoming Cabinet meeting on 16th July about the scrapping of their micro Park & Ride scheme.

Ruth Leuillette, the report's author and Deputy Head of Highways & Transport, (who attended the public meeting organised by my colleague Cllr Richard Willis last Monday) recommends:
"That following the announcement of the Lead Councillor for Regeneration, Transport and Planning at Council on 3 July 2012 to withdraw the proposals for Micro-Park and Ride, that the proposals are withdrawn with immediate effect."
This recommendation, which will have been decided by Cllr Tony Page, will be carried by Labour's Cabinet as that is their way.  On the odd occasion when they want to keep the Opposition and public in suspense they withhold a report's recommendation until the Cabinet meeting itself.
