reported on Saturday there is no sign that Bexley council is going to come good
on councillor Linda Bailey’s sound-bite
to provide some free parking in the run up to Christmas funded by Boris
Johnson’s Outer London Fund. No Outer London borough apart from Bexley charges
on Sundays anyway but some have announced further relaxations
to parking charges from the rather stingy one day only to the far more generous
every weekend until Christmas. Bromley, Croydon, Ealing, Enfield, Havering,
Hillingdon, Kingston, Lewisham and Merton are among the Outer London Boroughs
that have announcements on their website Home pages, most with far more spaces
available than even councillor Craske could invent.
Bexley as you might expect, despite councillor Bailey’s summer tease, has nothing but if you use the search facility you might discover that councillor Craske plans to provide more spaces at the Civic Centre car park at the normal rates - but then you may notice that the announcement is dated 2010. Does nobody keep Bexley’s website in order?
