FROM DAVID FEATHER: –
A big thank you to all of you who signed the petition last weekend against charging for car parking in the Country Park. We presented it to the Council on Monday.
On Tuesday the Friends were well represented at a meeting of the Cabinet of Wiltshire Council in County Hall.
The results of the petition and the many comments received were reported to the packed meeting by Suzanne Humphries. As a result, any implementation was postponed so that the Friends could give their views in a lot more detail than could be made in the Council consultation.
The Friends have been friends of Wiltshire Council since our inception. We have worked together on many projects and have saved the Council a lot of money over the years. We are now seeking the Council to reward us and do the right thing by removing the car park from the threat of charging. The Friends will be meeting with Cllr.Wayman on February 12th; we will keep you posted on progress.
