Disappointing parking plans

BPT has responded to the Council’s consultations on a new Parking Strategy and Coach Parking Strategy, citing our concern and disappointment that both strategies appear to ignore long term aspirations to reduce traffic and congestion and improve air quality in the city in favour of allowing more short term car and coach parking in the centre; both of which will increase vehicle movements and therefore congestion. The ‘vision’ for a low vehicle city centre combined with sustainable solutions to getting around Bath, namely cheap mass public transport and a modal shift to biking and walking, appear very far off.
