It is disappointing to see that work on providing additional off street parking spaces on St Stephens Square has not yet commenced.
The scheme which will see 8 spaces provided for the use of residents from the nearby flats, was due to have been completed in the spring. However it ran into planning problems
An amended design sought to address concerns about drainage by using a permeable mesh surface which allows water to drain through. An example of the system can be found outside the flats on Thanet Road.
If the scheme doesn’t get the go ahead at the next planning committee meeting scheduled for the 14th July, we start to think that someone is trying to torpedo the project!
