Don’t abuse free short-term parking

EDITOR – Can anyone tell me if the parking in Louth is monitored any more? It would seem many people are taking advantage of the half an hour free parking up the Cornmarket, in the bay outside the chip shop on Aswell Street and in the Kidgate spaces.

Just before the pub car park I quite frequently see the same cars parked in the mentioned places all day. It is not fair that people who just want to pop into town to, say, call in the bank or pop into one shop, can’t park as the spaces are taken by people abusing or taking advantage of the free half an hour parking.

If you want to stay all day, my suggestion is to pay and park in a public car park like many people have to... or simply leave your car at home and walk!
