Real ef­fects from air zone and ‘lit­ter po­lice’

Bath Chronicle - - OPINION -

I am be­gin­ning to won­der if Cllr Bob Good­man is in a par­al­lel uni­verse or some­thing. I’m just cu­ri­ous ex­actly where the pos­i­tive re­ac­tion to his ridicu­lous air zone pro­posal is, all I have seen to date has been pretty neg­a­tive, point­ing out the in­cred­i­bly ob­vi­ous flaws. It’s al­most scary, that this man is so delu­sional, that he doesn’t want to lis­ten to any con­tra­dic­tory opinions, or rec­tify the plan so that it might have a minute chance of suc­cess. Here in We­ston we ea­gerly await the in­evitable in­crease in traf­fic as peo­ple avoid the overly large zone... which Bob still be­lieves won’t hap­pen! With re­gard to his other half­baked scheme, the lit­ter po­lice, Pem­brokeshire re­cently let them loose and all of the warn­ings have come to pass. They are mak­ing no dif­fer­ence what­so­ever to lit­ter, just hand­ing out fines like con­fetti, al­ways soft tar­gets, re­gard­less of whether an ac­tual of­fence has oc­curred. It’s all about rev­enue, tar­gets and bonuses and noth­ing to do with lit­ter. You have been warned .... John Chap­man We­ston
