Parking makes the front page of The Haslemere Herald again

The front page of this week’s Herald leads with the story, Parking: We are being ignored.

HASLEMERE Parking Action Group claims Surrey County Council has still not listened the majority of people who have objected to its latest proposals for parking restrictions in the town.
Surrey’s local committee is due to meet at Haslemere Hall next Thursday, January 24, at 2.30pm.

Included on the agenda is a plan to remove some bays at the bottom of Shepherd’s Hill and in front of Costa Coffee.

Parking group spokesman Nikki Barton said: “Even Surrey leader David Hodge, speaking as recently as November said it’s important local people can park outside shops.
“And yet the county council has ignored 53 letters of objection, and claims without any evidence that the current angled parking is too dangerous for us, dictating that we must park parallel to the curb.”
