Two points for Reepham Town Council:
Would it be possible for buses to park at the fire station? There seems to be a lot of space there, providing a bus would not obstruct a fire engine exiting the site.
It is short-sighted of people to complain about bus parking. We need to encourage bus services, not frighten them away.
It is also short-sighted of the Town Council to allow political parties to set up stalls in the market.
Typically, a market is for buying and selling goods, not a forum for disseminating political propaganda.
Occupation of the market square half a day a week is already a threat to permanent businesses in Reepham as it restricts access.
This is tolerable if people find the market useful, but to have the square potentially taken over by political activists seems inappropriate and is unlikely to be popular.
Did councillors seek any views of residents before making their decision?
This could easily have been done by providing an item for publication on the Reepham Life website before the decision was made, not afterwards as a fait accompli.
