I agree with the comments made by participant sl318a about the excessive street furniture associated with the parking restrictions. A 50 yard section on Grange Loan, west of the junction with Findhorn Place has 6 posts associated with parking restrictions plus a pay machine. Not only are these posts an eyesore, but they cause inconvenience for pedestrians.
More fundementally I question whether an extention of the parking restrictions is still required given the marked decline in the numbers commuting to work as a consequence of so many employees working from home on a regular basis. The cost of extending the parking restrictions fall heavily on the residents, most of whom would require to pay an annual fee for parking outside their homes. What benefit is there for residents in return on their annual parking permit?
