Letter - Confusion over free parking

Have your say

SO, the council want to encourage people into Wakefield to help retailers and boost the economy, and they think that a half-baked attempt of a confusing free offer will do that? I don’t think so.

I live in Wrenthorpe and can easy walk to town, but rarely go to Wakefield, not because of the parking and shambolic road system, but because it’s lifeless, dull and uninviting.

I go to Barnsley regularly instead, the free parking is a bonus, but I would willingly pay the charges, simply for the lovely atmosphere and experience which is priceless.

Do the council genuinely not have a clue, or are they on a mission to suck the life out of a once enviable, thriving and lovely city? Have a walk around other towns, and get back to basics instead of trying to be cosmopolitan, because you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink, and with all due respect to Wakefield citizens, you’re the ones who keep voting them in.
