    Well the plans include a car park, I'm guessing that solves it!

    But that won't solve the "problem" of commuters parking there... can't see the pub being happy to let non-customers use their car park.

    Ah, didn't realise it was the pubs problem to solve commuter parking. Why don't they just put yellow lines down that whole road? Of course, then the buggers would be driving round your estate trying to find somewhere to park but at least they solved the immediate problem ;)

    Out of interest, what is the problem? I know I ride a motorbike so it doesn't really affect me, but that road looks wider than many streets in Stafford where people park outside houses on both sides.

    They have made once distinctive, characterful, beers totally bland so that no-one finds the taste unpleasant - or indeed finds the taste at all

    The leaflet that came round does promise to solve parking issues...

    Eh?!?!? Where did I say it was their problem to solve?

    Where did I say it was even a problem?!? In fact if you look back at my original post on the subject I put "parking problems" in " " on purpose as I was quoting them saying it and I didn't actually believe myself that there is a problem...

    How to spectacularly put words into people's mouth... much!

    Can't edit now, but to add to the above post, the wording from the flyer is:

    "Potential to resolve car parking issues - with the removal of existing provision along Kingsway"

    Their words, not mine....

    My personal opinion since it is in question ;) is that apart from people (selfish twunts) parking on double yellow lines at the rugby club crossing, which IMHO makes it dangerous for people crossing the road, parking in the area is not such an issue with the width of the road....

    Maybe there's a cunning plan to remove parking on the Kingsway prior to it becoming the start of something like, say, a Western Access Route..?

    Or perhaps they will make their own car park pay and display and then encourage the council to remove all on road parking on castlefields "because its what the residents want" and think they can clear up making money off parking...

    Think we had crossed wires a bit there, I've not seen a leaflet and it was you that mentioned the leaflet saying it would resolve parking problems and then mentioning the problem of commuters. I assumed the leaflet had mentioned that!

    You may be right about charging people to park there during the day though, its not like they'll have that many customers in as they'll be at work. Could make it free parking if using the pub, charge everyone else during the day. Make it pay on exit, validate customers parking at the bar, charge the commuters after a quick backhander to the council to add yellow lines.

    Isn't there a car park at the end of that road anyway? Albeit too far for lazy twunts to walk from.

    They'd cut the grass when I went past. Does that count as groundwork?

    I must admit, distracted as i was by the banana signs, i saw nothing approaching 'groundwork' in the sense that i understand it.

    The seething vegetal mass had been mown though - perhaps that does count?

    Banana protest signs? Are the Castlefields lot still moaning about that place?
