In what must be seen as the result of an effective piece of consultation (or perhaps the organised opposition!) the East Riding of Yorkshire Council has agreed to a re-think over its controversial proposals to introduce new parking charges.
The Hull Mail reports Councillor Felicity Temple as saying that the consultation “was a good exercise and we have listened. Now, we have got to find a third way.”
In the same article Cllr Temple also warns that further action might take some time to materialise: “We have just been through quite a long process and there is another long process to come….We need to analyse the responses to try to glean some of the suggestions people have put forward, but I am not sure how long that will take.”
