Our district councillors have a difficult enough time to attend their meetings, let alone trying to resolve the problems wished on them by central Government, to allow the building of more and more houses. They should not be pilloried but congratulated for trying to resolve the complex problem of more houses (which mean more cars) and more parking in the city.
The problem will not go away. I see no objection to this small extension. To compare it to the Dean's Meadow problems of some years ago is nonsense, as that furore was at the instigation of the cathedral for building houses which might have helped their finances. Luckily for them, any profit they might have made from building houses was provided by a helpful Mr Getty. Sadly no Mr Getty has come forward to provide Ely with extra parking.
Ideally, Ely ought to look to underground car-parking; but the expense of that is more than double (I suspect) that of a conventional car-park. Are we as Council Tax payers prepared to go to those lengths? I doubt it; but it might help our beleaguered councillors of all the hues, if they knew whether the tax payers would support such an expense, to keep this small rectangle of land as green, if it is still available.
Please give more support for those district councillors who are, after all, only doing what they are supposed to do, to take the district and this city, which is only part of it, forward in this new century. If your readers have sensible ideas of where parking could be found, I am sure that the district councillors would welcome their ideas.
