A 93-year-old woman is one of 44 allotment holders who face being evicted from their plots to make way for parking.

Holders have been told they must relinquish their allotments at Greenwood Park, Chiswell Green, to make way for a car park and workshop for grounds maintenance vehicles, and move to green space at North Close, which was only recently designated as an orchard and reflective garden community.

St Stephen’s Parish Council’s Capital Committee has agreed to begin the long process of relocating the 42 housing estates currently at the entrance to the park as part of what they say is a comprehensive improvement and efficiency plan for parish.

But estate holder Julie Johnson said: “They have allocated another piece of land which is totally unsuitable as it has tall trees and a six foot drop as well as being isolated and it will take many years to improve the ground at the level we already have.The current developments have been there for 40 years and one of the ladies – aged 91 – has been there since the beginning.

“We were told the parking lot is needed for weekend football, salsa lessons and events in the community center. The current parking lot has no markings and is therefore underutilized due to poor parking While we can accept that additional parking may be needed, there are better ways to utilize or expand existing parking lots.

“It all seems to run counter to encouraging us to ‘grow our own’ and given that gardening has been shown to be one of the most beneficial forms of exercise for physical and mental health, it seems odd. Why should we encourage more car use in our parks and green spaces?

“It may seem trivial with so many other things going on in the world, but as the council’s vision is to support local communities, to encourage inclusion and diversity also to protect and improve the environment, I think it goes against those values.”

Parish Council Chairman David Parry said: ‘We appreciate that what we are doing is disruptive to the 42 allotment holders, but we are determined to do everything we can to make this move as painless as possible and ultimately create better facilities for them, as well as providing the wider benefits to the parish.

A proposal meeting is scheduled for March 24 starting at 7 p.m. at Orton Hall in the Greenwood Park Community Center.

Repeated thefts of auto parts have been reported to the Murray State Police Department, according to the Murray State Crime and Fire Log.

A series of four reports of theft and criminal mischief were made on February 7, 8 and 9. Specifically, catalytic converters were stolen from parked vehicles. The time of the incidents spans from 1:30 a.m. to 3:40 a.m. and occurred in the Biology Building and Richmond Hall parking lots. The decision at the time of publication is listed as inactive/investigation suspended pending evidence and one case remains open.

Murray State Police Chief Jeff Gentry said it’s a widespread problem across the country, not just at the local level.

“The valuable materials inside the coins have a high salvage value, and it’s easy and quick for the thief to steal,” Gentry said.

For crime prevention, Gentry said he encourages the public to report crimes when they see them happening. As for an immediate response, Gentry said he suggests engraving the business license number on the catalytic converter or visiting a third-party store for an anti-theft kit.

Murray State Police are responding by implementing proactive patrols, monitoring CCTV cameras and raising awareness in the campus community about the thefts, Gentry said.

According to the Louisville Automotive Shop website, individuals can tell if their catalytic converter has been stolen based on the sound – the empty space where the converter was will cause an abnormally loud sound when starting the engine.

If your catalytic converter is stolen, report it to your local law enforcement agency. If this crime is happening on campus, call 270-809-2222 or use the LiveSafe app. Contact your insurer to find out if they will cover the repairs.

Auckland Council today, February 11, 2022, amended Auckland’s Unit Plan to remove minimum parking requirements for developments across the city, in line with central government guidelines.

The government has changed how councils nationwide can provide on-site parking, one of many new requirements set out in its National Policy Statement on Urban Development (NPSUD).

The NPSUD directs all New Zealand councils to remove minimum parking rules from their planning documents by 20 February 2022, with the exception of accessible parking or mobility, which councils may still require.

John Duguid, chief executive of Plans and Places, says the council is required by law to implement the NPSUD.

“To meet its statutory deadline, we have updated the Auckland Unit Plan on February 11, 2022 to remove on-site parking requirements to serve new and existing property and commercial developments.

“Council will provide accessible parking as part of a change of plan in August 2022.

“The government has also asked us to make these changes without a statutory plan amendment process, meaning no public consultation or council decision required.

“Over the past year, many councils across the country have already made these changes, including cities like Wellington and Hamilton. In Auckland, we already have no on-site parking requirements in some places where public transport is very frequent.

“However, these requirements have been removed for new developments anywhere in the city and the council can no longer require developers to provide on-site parking. This does not preclude on-site parking from being provided by choice, but those decisions will be made by landowners and property developers.

“Existing developments required to have parking lots as a condition of consent must request a consent amendment under the RMA to remove all required on-site parking lots,” Duguid says.

Additional Plan Change Investigations

To ensure that future developments without on-site car parks are well-designed, safe and accessible to people, Auckland Council is considering other potential changes to Auckland’s unit plan.

“We are currently reviewing our own changes regarding appropriate access for residents, pedestrians and emergency services, on-site bike and micro-mobility parks, on-site pick-up facilities, and drop-off and loading”, says Mr. Duguid.

“Additionally, where developers choose to provide off-street parking, we are exploring new rules for providing electrical connections to install smart chargers for electric vehicles.

“The board will consider how it moves forward with these potential changes in the first half of this year, before making decisions on wider changes to Auckland’s unit plan in August 2022.”

Auckland Transport reviews its parking strategy

The removal of parking minimums and the effects this could have on on-street parking in Auckland is being considered by Auckland Transport as it updates its parking strategy for the first time since 2015.

Auckland Transport’s head of integrated network planning, Andrew McGill, said Auckland’s roads exist to get people around our city, so it’s important they don’t get congested as they become de facto storage areas outside new developments.

“We are currently reviewing our parking strategy to ensure that the growing demand for on-street parking does not bring our streets to a standstill and inconvenience people moving through our city, whether by bus, bicycle or car. car,” says McGill.

“It’s fantastic to see so much development happening in our city, but it’s important that we find the right balance so that this progress doesn’t prevent us from making significant progress in improving the transport network on which Aucklanders count to move. daytime.

“The people of Auckland will soon be able to have a say in our draft parking strategy, which will include a wide range of changes to help us better manage parking in our city for the next decade.”

AT plans to consult on its draft parking strategy and associated parking plans in April, pending approval from its board and Auckland Council’s planning committee.

AS I SEE IT: TERRY MURDEN says demonizing motorists is not the right way to deal with the economy or net zero ambitions


It looks like there will be another showdown next week between the companies and those who govern us over the latest plans to impose fees on those who park in the office or factory parking lot. The Scottish Chamber of Commerce is flexing its muscles ahead of the latest round of talks with MSPs over the workplace parking charge, although its tough talk is little more than a complaint about the added cost burden on workers. businesses.

The added cost at a time when other costs are rising is certainly a key issue, and the SCC provides evidence that companies in Nottingham – the so-called flagship of such a scheme – have laid off workers or relocated their transactions in order to meet, or avoid, payments.

But if the CSC is serious about connecting WPL, it will need to strengthen its case with the Net Zero, Energy and Transport Committee by not being sidetracked by government agendas, such as its campaign for more bike lanes and parking lots. for bicycles. . There are many reasons why cycling is a failure for many commuters or delivery services and CSC must stop pandering to the cycling mafia.

Hammer policies like parking taxes and road blockages won’t stop drivers from finding ways to get to their place of work or delivery point. They just get more frustrated. Bus-only lanes are already compressing more traffic into single-file queues that create more congestion and encourage motorists to seek out rat-runs. To avoid workplace parking charges, commuters will park on residential side streets, creating a new problem.

I hear of artisans who avoid working in city centers because they are tired of parking restrictions that make it difficult to load and unload their vehicles close to where they work. It’s bad for them and for the local economy.

CSC and other corporate lobby groups should stand up for motorists and demand a more holistic solution to reducing emissions and congestion, while keeping the engine of the economy running. This latest skirmish comes as another committee has been formed in Glasgow to find solutions to the decline of its ‘style mile’ – Sauchiehall St, Buchanan Street and Argyle St. Recent initiatives have been pathetic. Planting more trees might hide graffiti and shut down stores, but it won’t bring back more shoppers and commuters. And more parking fees will force more of them to stay away.

There needs to be more focus on how to attract more people without penalizing them for choosing to drive. This means better management of traffic flows and encouraging more motorists to switch to electric vehicles, in particular through the provision of an efficient and abundant charging network, or the greater availability of shared vehicles. If local councils want to reduce the number of cars in town centres, they must offer more park and ride facilities.

Parking fees in our cities and towns should be staggered throughout the day to encourage people to shop and attend to their business interests. In the age of hybrid work, why do loads still apply throughout the day? Why not increase the availability of free short-term parking at different times of the day in different areas of the city to distribute traffic and boost local commerce?

A little imagination wouldn’t hurt.

Of course, one of the main reasons to prefer the WPL route is that it offers a new source of revenue for local authorities who claim to be struggling to find money. Forget all that net zero stuff, it’s another case of talking money.

Lancaster venues and restaurants need bolstering with the city’s parking system https://pkw-zubehoer.com/lancaster-venues-and-restaurants-need-bolstering-with-the-citys-parking-system/ Sun, 13 Feb 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://pkw-zubehoer.com/lancaster-venues-and-restaurants-need-bolstering-with-the-citys-parking-system/ Lancaster’s theatres, entertainment venues, restaurants and hospitality businesses need a parking system that encourages, not deters, visitors, a leading adviser has said.

Lancaster’s theatres, entertainment venues, restaurants and hospitality businesses need a parking system that encourages, not deters, visitors, a leading adviser has said.

A proposed new, simpler fare system has raised concerns that patrons of theaters and restaurants will be deterred, just as theatres, arts venues and restaurants are recovering from the lockdown. Consider additional parking options for arts and entertainment audiences.

And specific discussions are needed with theaters and entertainment venues to better identify their needs and views, which may be different from those of other groups and business sectors, the city council office said.

Labor Councilor Sandra Thornberry has raised concerns over a proposed set of new parking rates for Lancaster town centre. She was speaking at Lancaster City Council’s latest cabinet meeting, during an update on proposed new rates for the district. Fees have not changed since 2018 and advisors agree that some changes are necessary.

In Lancaster the rates offered are £1 for 30 minutes, £2 for one hour, £4 for three hours, £9 for nine hours and £12 for 24 hours.

In Morecambe, short-term parking for up to three hours would have options of £2, £3 or £4.

Other Morecambe parking charges would be mainly £1, £2, £4 or £8 for 30 minutes, two hours, four hours or 24 hours respectively. Heysham is said to have options of £2 or £3 for two hours or 24 hours.

Earl Thornberry told the cabinet: ‘In relation to Lancaster town center rates, have there been any consultations by council officers with significant organizations who may be affected? I’m thinking of the Grand and Duke theaters, as well as other entertainment venues and restaurants that are often associated with them.

Green Coun Gina Dowding, who had outlined the pricing plans, said: “Business improvement organization BID and the Chamber of Commerce have had the opportunity to provide feedback to agents. It may also be possible to create flexible agreements between car parks and hospitality companies in the future, such as the former Park Safe overnight scheme. Council officers are ready to work with local businesses on options.

But during a debate, Councilor Thornberry added: “I am very concerned about the rates proposed by Lancaster. I spoke to the Grand Theater and Duke’s volunteers but didn’t get a chance to speak to the manager.

“The proposals include removing the low evening and overnight parking fees we currently have. The proposed time allocation is also increased from three to nine hours. Three hours is not enough for theater visitors. A family going to a panto would not make the round trip in three hours. Still, the £9 nine-hour fare would be a huge deterrent to a family visit.

“In the evening, many theatergoers want to spend more than three hours in the city center. Many would like a meal deal that both theaters offer. But they would face a parking charge of £9, which would be a great deterrent.

‘Pensioners can get cinema tickets for £4.50, but if they have to pay £9 parking fee they will say ‘forget it’.

“I accept that parking rates need to go up, but these plans would be a big step forward.”

Earl Thornberry added: ‘Many buses to outlying locations don’t run at 10pm so people can’t get buses home at night. They therefore rely on affordable parking lots.

“These tariffs could have a very significant and disturbing effect on the night economy and these major institutions. This is a time when they are working hard to reclaim their full audience, especially the Grand. He’s trying to bring back an older audience that has been deterred by the pandemic. »

She requested that the proposed tariffs be restructured. Perhaps a £5 six-hour fare would be an option. Morecambe had a four-hour option, she noted. So there was flexibility in different places.

She underlined: “Different elected officials are involved in this work. Lancaster’s major arts and cultural organizations are very important to the city and the district at large.

Countess Dowding said she understood the concerns. Council officers would be asked to consider additional options for parking hours and fees, as well as options for the cultural sector and overnight.

Officers agreed, but they also said data was used to craft the proposed new time options. Additionally, any new options would need to be consistent with City Council’s budget plans for 2022-23.

Labor councilor Erica Lewis added: “It’s important to look at all of this, given the importance of data and the night economy. But this is perhaps the second time that the consultations with the BID Group and the Chamber of Commerce have not been linked to the needs of the arts and culture sector. There has to be a better way to connect with arts and culture.

Councilors were told that the proposed new changes to parking fees were generally well received at a recent BID meeting.

Rising scrap metal prices are behind metal thefts which have hit a seven-year high in Northamptonshire.

Data from the Office for National Statistics shows Northamptonshire Police recorded 303 metal thefts in 2020-21, up from 238 the previous year and the most since 2013-14, when there were 500.

Of the thefts last year, 69 were related to infrastructure, including the stripping of metals such as lead from building roofs, the taking of electrical or railway cables or the theft of vehicle parts.

Catalytic converters contain precious metals and are a regular target for thieves in Northamptonshire

The other 234 were not related to infrastructure, which could involve the theft of scrap metal or war memorials.

The Local Government Association says an increase in metal theft in England and Wales – caused in part by an increase in metal prices – is “extremely damaging and costly” for the businesses and individuals affected.

In England and Wales, 19,000 metal theft offenses were recorded last year. That’s 17,400 more than the previous year and the most since 2014-15.

And the LGA is calling for changes to the Scrap Dealers Act 2013, which was introduced to crack down on the trade in stolen metal.

Nesil Caliskan, Chairman of the LGA Safer and Stronger Communities Board, said: “Metal theft can affect a range of people and businesses and is extremely damaging and costly.

“Councils are targeting their resources as effectively as possible and doing what they can to help businesses comply with the requirements of the legislation – and can take enforcement action when problems are identified.”

She added that the LGA is calling on the government to update the Scrap Dealers Act and introduce an offense of advertising and receiving money for scrap metal to act as a deterrent.

The ONS said the 9% rise in the total number of offenses nationwide came after better recording of the theft of catalytic converters, which contain precious metals.

A spokesperson for the force said: ‘Catalytic converters are attractive to thieves because they contain high-value rare earth metals, and those involved are often part of organized crime groups.

“Most thefts happen in parking lots, but they can happen anywhere. Thieves can then sell these converters through junkyards, online, or ship them out of the country.

“Park your vehicle in a garage or secure compound if possible to deter thieves from stealing your converter. If this is not possible, park in a well-lit and highly visible area.

“You can also register your catalytic converter or mark it forensically so it’s harder for thieves to get rid of.”

A Home Office spokeswoman said: ‘We have funded the establishment of the National Infrastructure Crime Reduction Partnership, which provides national coordination of police and law enforcement partners to combat the metal theft, including vehicle theft and agriculture-related theft.

“The partnership has provided training to law enforcement and other partner agencies, shares intelligence to target offenders, and implements crime prevention measures.”

Preparations begin for regeneration

People who use two busy car parks in central Ivybridge fear there will be too few spaces to leave their vehicles when an area is fenced off on Monday. [10 January].

South Hams District Council has admitted that parking capacity at Glanvilles Mill and Leonards Road parking lots will be reduced for the week.

Parts of the car park will be fenced off as preparatory work for a £ 9million regeneration project for the city begins. The redevelopment is expected to include a new Aldi supermarket in the Leonards Road car park.

The town hall apologized for the inconvenience but some people who frequent the parking lots say they are unhappy.

Darryl, who lives in the area, said: “This can only make doing business in Ivybridge more difficult. This will reduce traffic and possibly irritate people. We could lose a certain custom.

He also doubted that the new Aldi supermarket would increase footfall.

“If there is no parking lot where people will park to do their shopping?” ” he said.

Plans for the new store will provide adequate parking when completed.

Another local resident, Lisa, was also concerned about the impact of closing parts of the parking lot.

“I live quite locally so I can walk to work,” she said.

“But a lot of my colleagues who work on Main Street don’t know where they’re going to park, so they’re going to clutter up the rest of Ivybridge.

“I think there are going to be a lot of cars everywhere.”

On the construction of a new supermarket and the impact on parking, Lisa was cautiously optimistic. “Apparently there will be enough for everyone to use what they need.

“I think in the long run, the jury is out on that one, I’m afraid for the moment.

“But I think the streets of Ivybridge are going to get a lot more congested.”

Regeneration plans include the development of a section of the Leonards Road parking lot to include the Aldi store. Previous consultations have suggested that the proposal has broad support from the local population.

It is estimated that the planned store could create between 30 and 40 jobs, with up to 100 shoppers able to use it at any time.

Buyers are also expected to use other city facilities while in the area.

Preparations for construction come as plans for a new walkway in the city have been submitted to replace one of the existing wooden walkways in the city center.

The North Bridge, which spans the Erme and links the Moulin de Glanvilles to the neighboring car park, was built in the mid-1980s but has since suffered from rotting.

If adopted, the replacement bridge would be metal rather than wood.

South Hams District Council is inviting people to comment on the proposed bridge replacement until Thursday, January 13.

This is the categorical message from a senior Fylde town councilor following social media speculation that the precious meadows of Lytham’s waterfront jewel may be lost to accommodate more cars.

The firm insurance comes after a claim on social media that the consultation, which ends Sunday night, could result in more permanent parking lots on The Green, in addition to the current two, which are actually extensions of Bath Street and Dicconson Terrace.

The Green has been used in recent times, including last summer, for grass parking but which has been strictly reserved for special events, as designated by the council.

Your opinion on parking at Lytham

“It’s a completely open agenda, with opinions welcome from all concerned, but more tarmac on The Green is categorically not an option.

“Actually, we couldn’t do it if we wanted to, because it’s covered by an alliance, but there is certainly no will to do it anyway, and this consultation is not an attempt to” backdoor “to get there.”

Question eight of the survey asks if parking on The Green near Charlie’s Mast (across Queen Street) or across from Lowther Pavilion could be considered, but Small Council said if that were to be the case, parking would be on the grass and for special occasions only, as is currently the case, with a request for permission in each case.

Any expansion of spaces in the Bath Street parking lot, also mentioned as a possible option, would likely be done in its current settings, Coun Small added.

The consultation is available to contribute online until Sunday January 9 at midnight and can be found at www.fylde.gov.uk/consultation

Do you remember the days when you needed a pocket of change to pay for parking your car? How things have changed!

Today the focus is on smart parking solutions with ticketless entry, automatic license plate recognition, live monitoring of parking space availability, use of QR codes, UHF windshield beacons , radio frequency identification and payment cards.

A smooth customer experience

Parking is a big deal. Owners of parking lots, garages and lots at airports, train stations, shopping parks and corporate offices know that today’s parking lots need to be fully operational 24/7. They should allow drivers to use them – and pay for them – quickly and easily, with a minimum of fuss.

By making the customer experience fluid, simple and practical, car parks have become a great opportunity to bring a value-added service culture to a once cold and impersonal interaction.

Stay operational 24/7

With technology now at the heart of the operation of car parks, it is imperative that these solutions are always fully operational and that maintenance and repairs are organized and executed with precision. Most of the innovations that are now standard features of today’s parking lots were developed by Scheidt & Bachmann.

We are a global leader, active in 50 countries. We wanted the right technology partner to equip us with the skills and solutions to successfully manage the efficient delivery of our service portfolio. We also wanted a partner to help our customers get the most out of our technology, maximize their parking lot revenue and meet their business goals.

For us, this partner is ServiceNow and its Field Service Management (FSM) and Customer Service Management (CSM) solutions. Our old self-developed tool served us well for 20 years, but admittedly was out of date. We replaced it with a harmonized service management tool and a fully integrated customer portal through which customers can log information and request support 24/7.


Now, if one of our technologies requires intervention in a car park, a ticket is issued via FSM, an engineer is immediately sent and the customer is automatically notified. Our engineers use a mobile app to order all the materials they need and to stay in touch with their base and the customer.

Improved productivity

(NewsNation Now) – Used car lots are inundated with new car prices.

As used vehicle prices exceed any seemingly rational level, this is the kind of scenario playing out in many car dealerships across the country. Prices have climbed so high, so fast, that buyers are increasingly excluded from the market.

A new report has found that the average price of a used car is up about 40% from a year ago, according to Edmunds.com.

The average monthly price for a used car is $ 520. This takes into account the down payment, the interest rates and the price of the vehicle.

This means that more than half of American households now have less income than what is deemed necessary to purchase a mid-priced used vehicle.

There are empty parking spaces in many new parking lots, which drives up the prices of used vehicles.

The shortage of microchips since the start of the pandemic has gone hand in hand with soaring prices and has spurred demand for more used vehicles as new cars are simply not being built.

Since March 2020, used car prices have increased by 42%. Dealers and owners do not have to lower asking prices due to high demand.

That puts the average price of a new car at over $ 29,000.

So if you have a budget for buying a car, you will probably need to buy one that has more miles or that is much older than you originally wanted.

Experts do not know when this price hike will abate. Some say 2023, others say it could be 2024 before car prices stabilize.
