|Sharma Attacks Coalition Decision|
Alok Sharma has finally woken up to the fact that the Lib Dem/Tory gang who briefly ran the council managed to slash residents parking permits by half LAST January, replacing the 20 all-day permits offered free to residents each year with 20 half-day vouchers.
The Labour run Council has since doubled the number of free half-day permits available a year to the 12,000 people living in residents' parking zones from 20 to 40.
The Tory MP said residents were concerned about the lack of consultation by the Lib Dems and Tories over the January change from all-day permits.
I guess Sharma must have finally held a surgery to wise up to the changes. Cllr Willis, are you listening? Well done Reading Chronicle!
