Wisbech Market Place

Wisbech Market Place


THE old saying “be careful what you wish for, you may get it” has never been more true.

Those promoting Option Two for Wisbech Market Place are to get what they wished for – pay parking!

It was obvious to any intelligent person that if option two was adopted pay parking would quickly spread to all Fenland District Council car parks.

Businesses throughout Fenland have the vested interests around the market in Wisbech to thank for pay parking in their town. Will the shops throughout Fenland see pay parking as a help to improving their trade? I doubt it.

Add to this the plan to reintroduce through traffic and you have a recipe for disaster.

The reason for not bringing sanity to Wisbech Market Place is unabashed political dogma. What a sad day for our town.
