Car parking problems; FEEDBACK.

IF we were going to design a town from scratch it would look nothing like Huddersfield (or Dewsbury), It would likely have easily accessible car parks on the edge of a ring road with walking routes into the town centre.

So the idea to pedestrianise the town centres as Clr Peter McBride has a vision of is not as daft as it seems.

But we don't have that many easily accessible car parks on the edge of the town centre and the ones we do have mean shoppers are constantly clock-watching to get back before their parking ticket runs out (Kirklees - please restore the Queensgate market to pay on exit).

And, of course, Kirklees Council itself admits it can do little about the empty shops because it doesn't own them.

My family think nothing of driving to the Trafford Centre for a day of shopping and food.

The people in our council need to acknowledge and accept that rather than think they can bring us back.

Parking is the biggest problem. Kirklees doesn't get that point and it seems unlikely it ever will based on what we've heard so far.
