Adam, I donít think anyone here has quibbled with the councilís consultation issue response. In retrospect it does seem fair. I myself rarely get to park in the street where I live.

What remains unfair, however, is the fact that communication of the councilís decision was restricted to a consultation page on its website and the local press. This resulted in paying residents being unaware of the changes and being fined.

This then begs the question, how are residents meant to check something if they donít know itís about to exist and donít access the media in which it's being publicised? The change in parking zone wasnít even reflected on the councilís own parking zone map until 3 weeks after the change.

Evidently, the first some residents knew of the change was by virtue of a penalty charge notice.

As for your statement, ďWho is going to vote to reducing their ability to park in someone elseís streetĒ - well, I would have if the question had been put to me openly and fairly. It wasnít though. Now some residents are left to appeal a £100 fine for using a paid for service that was withdrawn at effectively no notice with minimal warning.
