I’ve just been sent a report from Bishop Stortford’s Citizen newspaper. Apparently a parking clampdown’s been requested by the town council following suggestions written in this site’s Chat Forum that free parking in the town is a good way to escape Stansted Airport’s parking charges. It’s an interesting read, and does create a bit of a moral dilemma: is it a good thing people can escape the clutches of the Stansted prices? Or should we consider it an unfair disruption of life for the local residents? I’ll let you decide.
It’s worth taking a read of the Citizen Series article and the Great Airport Parking Hunt.
