SHAME on the BCP for selling off another car park. Parking anywhere in the conurbation is already difficult and every closure will only add to the problem.

The building of flats (Beach Road) will generate a quick financial fix for the treasures department, but will bring with it more transport on our already congested local roads, as we have already witnessed with huge out of town housebuilding projects and the never ending rush for high-rise flats in our towns.

A local care worker told me that it took her one hour in the rush hour traffic to travel from Wimborne to Upton, not helped by road works.

She did tick one BCP box though – she hardly reached a speed exceeding 20mph.
