Who is objecting to the Expanded Parking zone!
We had expected out readers to write in supporting the Clifton Expanded Parking Zone. But instead someone copies us in on an objection they sent in

To whom it may concern,
I am a regular visitor to Clifton and would like to write in objecting to the proposed plans to add more car parking in Clifton.
These proposals are at odds with the council's main proposal of hierarchy which should be 'pedestrians, cycles, public-transport first'.
We are supposed to be a cycling city, yet at every turn the good work of that project is being eroded by short term proposals such as this. This change is a missed opportunity to implement some decent segregated infrastructure for bicycle users.
By providing extra residential and short stay car parking in the area, it will make walking and cycling worse and do nothing to improve the quality of life in this lovely area. The proposed intent to reduce anti-social parking should be achieved through better enforcement of existing traffic regulations rather than this expensive and backward step.
I urge you to reject this proposal.
This is as shocking as if the proprietor of the daily mail announced he was going to enter a civilian partnership with a muslim refugee on unemployment benefit.
We urge all our readers to write in demanding that the proposal is enacted in full.
