Needs of bik­ers are ig­nored

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

RE: Mo­tor­cy­cle and scooter park­ing in Ash­ford. Where they pro­mote en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits of sav­ing on fuel and to cut down the use of cars in town cen­tre, why only pro­vide park­ing in Vicarage Lane and not in any of the new car parks built by the coun­cil? I have emailed the coun­cil and their re­ply is to buy a ticket and park in a whole space. Two ques­tions I ask. One, wouldn’t this an­noy car driv­ers who want the space? and two, where to se­curely place the ticket on a bike? This prob­lem isn’t just iso­lated to the town, su­per­mar­kets and out­lets don’t seem to pro­vide for two-wheeled rid­ers. Stu­art Wil­liams, Wye.
