I HAVE been reading about how Tesco is installing hi-tech measures in a crack-down on people who park on its premises for too long at some of its stores.

It will enforce a two-hour parking restriction using equipment capable of reading number plates of vehicles arriving and leaving the site.

Why is Ely not considering such schemes?

In London suburbs that suffer commuter parking they specify that one-hour parking is NOT permitted eg: between 14 - 1500 hours. It then is very easy to identify offenders!! Obviously, car parks where you want to encourage commuters to park do not have this restriction.
