More thought could have avoided charge

Bath Chronicle - - OPINION -

With a lit­tle fore­thought BANES could have averted a deal of pol­lu­tion and con­ges­tion by adopt­ing strate­gies car­ried out in more for­ward think­ing Euro­pean tourist coun­tries and Her­itage sites. For ex­am­ple: Store and ho­tel de­liv­er­ies to be car­ried out be­tween mid­night and six am The very pop­u­lar elec­tric “Noddy” trains in­stead of the of­ten half empty red tour buses lum­ber­ing round our streets and avoid­ance of long term con­tracts to ve­hi­cles such as these Chevron park­ing in res­i­den­tial ar­eas Pre­dictably these same res­i­den­tial ar­eas will suf­fer from freight ve­hi­cles and tourist coaches avoid­ing charges. Pre­ven­tion is prover­bially bet­ter than cure folks. Chris Owen Bath res­i­dent
