MUCH has been said about local businesses in the St Clement’s area (including Coco’s, Tick Tock and the local hairdressers) who have reported business being down by 30 per cent since the St Clement’s car park closed last year for a student development.

But what about the local residents?

We only get 25 free visitors’ permits a year and the closure of the car park has put extra pressure on available spaces.

Workmen, carers, family and friends find it very difficult to find a car parking space, and, if you own a car, it can take up to an hour to find a space.

It was very short-sighted to build on the car park and everyone was against it. I rest my case.
