A meeting to discuss making improvements to existing car parking provision in Wellington was held on 18th Sept. Matt Powell from Telford Council’s Traffic Management Division was invited by Cllr Angela McClements to consider alternative parking management schemes that might benefit the town.
She said, ‘Accommodating all car users is simply impossible in the modern day for our town centres. Parking management and enforcement has become a necessity in many busy town locations. However, the nature of management and enforcement has caused conflict between the car user and the town centre. The vast majority of our traditional urban centres pre-date the existence of cars and common car ownership and we need to look at how we adopt future car parking schemes’.
