Park­ing prob­lem in Camp­bel­town?

Campbeltown Courier - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, As some­one who reg­u­larly has to park in or around the town cen­tre of Camp­bel­town, it is most frus­trat­ing to see so many spa­ces al­lo­cated to taxis, and very of­ten not oc­cu­pied. It would surely make much more sense to change the spa­ces be­side and be­hind The Orig­i­nal Fac­tory Shop back to reg­u­lar park­ing spa­ces, es­pe­cially as they were pre­vi­ously spa­ces which did not have the one-hour time limit on them. I ex­pect most peo­ple think of the taxi rank as be­ing at the town hall, hence that be­ing where most of the taxi driv­ers seem to wait for hires. They have space right up to the Ar­gyll Ho­tel and it is rare to ever see them us­ing it all. Peo­ple do seem to have started park­ing be­hind the Fac­tory Shop, prob­a­bly purely out of des­per­a­tion, and quite rightly so, see­ing as I have lit­er­ally never seen a taxi wait there since the rank was re­in­stated at the town hall. Surely com­mon sense should pre­vail and the many, many peo­ple who strug­gle to find a park­ing space on a daily ba­sis should get their park­ing spa­ces back. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
