A new notice which appeared on the street sign post near my gate attracted my attention so I looked to see what it was about.
I found that West Sussex County Council is raising the resident’s second or subsequent permit charges for parking from £71.75 to £72.
Of course the 25p increase is desperately needed to help pay for the filling of the numerous potholes that we are currently suffering. Agates Corner Roundabout gets worse every day!
However, offset against the cost of typing, printing, laminating and fixing to the posts there will not surely be enough left to cover the cost of filing one pothole.
I do not know when the notices were put out but assume it was on April 1st.
