I was disappointed that Portsmouth City Council chose to withdraw residents’ parking in two roads in Southsea.
Some of you who live out of town may not understand the nightly circling of roads around Pompey as increasingly desperate drivers try to find a place to park.
It’s always something that has made my heart sink – finishing work very late, then facing the challenge of finding a parking space that was a) legal and b) not miles away.
I’d love residents’ parking in my road.
It might make Mr Colas Truck dump his vehicle in the depot instead.
Similarly, Mr Hampshire County Council Minibus might think twice about parking his monster outside my house all weekend.
