Latest Withdean Canvassing

The Pavilion canvassing team were out in full force again on a brisk wintry afternoon talking and listening to residents in and around Maldon Road. Withdean ward councillors Ken and Ann Norman, along with Withdean ward candidate Nick Taylor, Patcham ward candidate Karen Miles and activist Patrick Gorton all worked with Clarence to assess the concerns and issues of the area. The imminent extension of BHCC parking controls was one of the principal discussion points with a variety of views being expressed. The team outlined how a Conservative controlled city council would end rip-off parking charges, ease the city-wide congestion through a number of measures and pledge not to bring in new parking control schemes, all with the primary aim of parking enforcement being the preservation of parking for residents themselves.
