Multi-storey might be park­ing an­swer

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - DAVE ROBINS Road

I AM slightly baf­fled by Dilyana Manolova’s let­ter (Gazette, Oc­to­ber 8) as I have had plenty of pa­per­work from Hilling­don Coun­cil about our new Park­ing Man­age­ment Scheme and there are also sev­eral no­tices up in my road on the sub­ject.

I’m not a car owner my­self but I know that my neigh­bours are re­lieved that they can park out­side their homes again dur­ing the day.

I do won­der though where many peo­ple are go­ing to park in West Dray­ton in fu­ture with the vast num­ber of new flats be­ing built here; park­ing will only get worse when Cross­rail draws more com­muters into the town.

What will park­ing be like in five years’ time? Has the coun­cil made pro­vi­sion for park­ing spa­ces in­stead of filling ev­ery va­cant scrap of land with new dwellings? Might it not be an idea to build a multi-storey car park some­where round here in­stead?
