The increase is welcome and long overdue. The city's streets are assets which belong to all of the citizens. It is right that the council should seek to raise revenue from its assets. Great Western Road is well served by the Subway and buses. If the number of private cars parking can be reduced and bus lanes introduced, we will have quicker and more frequent bus services.
We can also have the gutters cleared regularly to avoid the clogging of drains and the consequent huge puddles.

Go to jail
I WOULD like to wish all the worst to the scum who robbed my family's home on Sunday, December 22 and stole some of my grandchildren's presents.
I hope when you are caught you get the full sentence reported in last week's Evening Times ('New move to jail burglars for five years') for house-breaking during the Christmas period. You know who you are - and so do we.

WITH all the rain that has fallen, the streets around Mosspark resemble lagoons, and many drains are stopped up with fallen leaves.
You would have thought that the council could have anticipated falling leaves (as it happens every year) and would have made arrangements to clear the leaves and ensure drains did not block.
Hope they will do something before there is a freeze and the problem gets worse.

I AM impressed the council is installing new lighting.
I do hope the new lighting and gating will be installed in these lanes located in the city centre before the visitors, dignitaries and tourists arrive to see the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
