Parking nightmare

READING your article about the parking strategy consultation in the newspaper dated November 14 meant there was not much time to see the proposals in Huntingdon Commemoration Hall, as they were held on November 13 and 14.

Payment for parking in Riverside car park will of course be completely out of the question as the vast majority of parking spaces are taken up by Luminus employees. The reason for this is that some person in the council gave Luminus planning permission to build houses on their car park, which is probably why Huntingdon council tried to take over the part of the playing fields at Riverside for additional car parking spaces.

You should also note that the new county court has some 200-plus employees and only 50 parking spaces, so does this mean when the new library is built most of the parking spaces will be allocated to the people in the county court building (parking places for the boys?)

Other points to ponder... why are there only five parking places for Hackney carriages in Huntingdon? And why do I have to push or carry my shopping to the bus station to get a taxi?
