I have today written to Councillor Tim Ashton, Cabinet Member for Street Scene to ask him to approve the budget from existing resources to build a small car park in Wesham. As I’ve mentioned before there is a small plot of land behind the post office that is owned by the council and would make an ideal car park for 4 or 5 cars. There would be an enforced time limit on the car park so it’ll be used by people just to use the shops. This will help the shops with passing business and will also help with the congestion problems around Catherine Street and Albert Street.

I am under the impression that Tim is minded to approve this, it’s just the technical side that we need to square. I’ll keep you all informed.
