Can somebody please tell us why the council are so dead against building a multi-storey car park in Ely? Is it because it would block the view of the cathedral, if so, I think the council should take a walk around the city centre to see how much you can see of it (not a lot ) .

I think the ideal place to put the multi-storey would be where the council offices stand as they are being knock down soon anyway (or are more houses going there).

Wisbech has about the same size town centre and they have a multi-storey.

All the council are thinking about is how much it will cost them and they are not thinking about how lack of parking is effecting retailers, customers, and householders. They are just making matters worse and worse, and why bring so many restaurants and coffee shops into Ely when people will not have time to go into them as the new parking times will only be two hours. The council need to put this multi-storey in soon so that everyone will benefit.
