AFTER 14 years since the pedestrianisation of the Market Place in Wisbech, the latest news on this subject is the report on pay parking - well, 50 per cent anyway, with the remainder remaining for pedestrians.
Just why motorists have been allowed to flout the law over the years and park illegally is something of a mystery.
With many local authorities throughout the land criticised for making a healthy profit from parking revenues, the amount of revenue which could have been realised over the years from these law flouters must be considerable.
But back to the subject. With a proposal for 28 parking bays, which would be available for the general motorist (and relevant delivery vehicles) on just four days a week, the enforcements, the issuing of penalty notices and collection of any fines imposed, seems to be rather elaborate and time-consuming, but presumably
Still it remains to be a 'done deal' and the market square as a pedestrian area, as originally envisaged way back in 1993, may be the more sensible
