Halt plan to turn town centre garden into car park

At its meeting on 7 March 2019, the council received a petition titled ‘Help to halt plans to turn a town centre garden into a car park’ signed by 1770 online and via a paper petition.

As the petition had received over 500 signatures, there was a debate at the full Council meeting.

The Council agreed that the current project to create additional car parking spaces be put on hold with only remedial works being undertaken and the Director of Growth and Regeneration be tasked with reviewing the scheme.
