Get real on park­ing

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Home Help With A Difference -

You ask for views on the Eureka busi­ness park park­ing de­ba­cle, whereby a large num­ber of busi­ness park users are choos­ing to be par­a­site park­ers and use nearby res­i­den­tial streets as a free long stay car park. The busi­ness es­tate own­ers are ex­tend­ing their car park, which is good news un­til they also ex­tend the busi­ness park when we will all be back to square one.

It is time Trin­ity Col­lege Cam­bridge – ul­ti­mate own­ers of the busi­ness park and one of the rich­est landown­ers in the UK – get real about pro­vid­ing free park­ing for the busi­ness ten­ants.

They cur­rently charge for it which means com­pa­nies turn a blind eye to their em­ploy­ees park­ing in nearby streets. This is stink­ing PR in the 21st cen­tury for com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions who should know bet­ter.

The nui­sance park­ers come from all over Kent and not many, if any, from Ash­ford. Many dis­play res­i­dent park­ing stick­ers from the likes of Maid­stone etc.

They will not ar­rive by bus or car share in a mil­lion years. Get real Eureka be­fore the new pri­mary school opens in Septem­ber and adds to the morn­ing rush. Gerry Moore Ash­ford
