Parking call-in accepted

The Liberal Democrat request for a 'call-in' of the decision made by Cornwall's Cabinet last week on huge parking increases has been accepted by the Council.

This means that, for the first time, the Environment and Economy scrutiny committee will get to discuss one of the biggest and most controversial decisions made by Cornwall Council to date.

The meeting will be held next Thursday at 2.30pm and, if necessary, Cabinet will meet the next day to consider any recommendations from the scrutiny committee.

Let us hope common sense prevails. Carpark charges have for too long been the milch-cow of Councils; they have to start thinking in new ways. Here we are in half term and the Penzance carparks have plenty of spaces. Bet it's the same elsewhere in Cornwall.
