Porthleven – Parking Enforcement
At last nights Porthleven Town Council meeting the Councillors read a report written by me about hiring extra enforcement for parking in Porthleven. This report outlined some basic plans with costs and drawbacks. Those Councillors present felt that this could be possible, but they felt that they needed more details before they make their decision.
I believe that the Council is going down the right course of action in accepting in principle that it could work, but before they do commit they want further details and clarification on many points. It’s a credit to the Town Council that they want to make sure all the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed before they make this decision. They are going to send me a list of points that they need answers too before they agree (or not) to this proposal. If they do in agree in principle, then they plan to consult the public for their views before making the final decision.
It’s good to see a small but local Council being proactive in trying to solve a difficult issue. Many times I have heard what the point of a local Council because they have no power, but I say to those who criticise that these volunteers do try to do the best they can with the resources and powers they have.
