    Q: Any other comments?
    A: The market days are causing an enormous amount of litter in the city and the booths seems to be looking very tatty. Whilst enjoying a market town/city, more should be done on the amount of litter. In addition, why do we see so many Pound type stores opening on the High Street. Is that truly what the majority of St Albans residents are looking for? The upper end of the High Street needs considerable regeneration. The parking in St Albans is outrageous. Firstly extremely limited and secondly very expensive

    Q: What is your view of the suggestion about the proposal to introduce one hour free parking in some parts of the city centre?

    A: Car parking charges should be reduced to match the charges in other towns locally. I’m sure this cause a marginal reduction in income derived from parking but the shopkeepers of St Albans will notice improved footfall. I shall continue to shop in Watford unless there is parking price parity.

    Q: Any other comments?
    A: I do find the introduction of parking charges on Sundays a touch cynical and so the appeal of plenty of parking in Watford is always a pull (specifically if you make use on the retail parks on the ring-road and use your allocated time of FREE parking and use your legs to walk into the centre.

    A: Car parking charges in some car parks, are not visible until you have reached the point of no return. The car park opposite the old police station for example does not display it’s charges until you reach the barrier and then it is too late to turn back. 1 hour free car parking might benefit some people but by the time you have parked your car you do not have enough time to do any real shopping. The buses from where I live in Bricket Wood are unreliable. Maybe some of the local schools could be encouraged to open up their car parks at weekends or leading up to Christmas, at a reduced cost. I do shop in St Albans but never on market days because there is even less parking available on these days because the market traders take up most of the spaces in one car park. What about a park and ride scheme?

    A: IT IS ILLEGAL TO KILL SOMEONE, YET THE COUNCIL SEES FIT TO COMPLETELY KILL THE TOWN CENTRE AND HOPEFULLY GET AWAY WITH IT. WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE ON ? DO THEY NOT HAVE THE BASIC COMMON SENSE TO REALISE THAT THEIR DISRESPECTFUL GREED IN PICKING THE POCKETS OF THE MOTORING PUBLIC MAY HAVE A DEVASTATING EFFECT ON THE LOCAL ECONOMY, UPON WHICH THEY RELY FOR THEIR OWN GOALS AND SUCCESS ???
