Free car parking would encourage shoppers
RVBC should be helping the town and borough by reopening some public toilets for a start and encouraging residents and visitors to shop locally. Cutting essential services such as toilets is not an effective way forward, since it alienates the electorate and drives away visitors.
Car parking should also be free and more readily available to discourage roadside parking and encourage shoppers. It amazed me that the car park in the prime spot by the Railway Inn was built on by Ribble Valley homes without provision for a ground level car park under the building.
Let’s get the basics right and move forwards towards a better borough, not criticise those trying to make it better.
