Bid to block Lake District parking meter plans fails

A BID to block controversial parking charges in the Lake District has failed.

Two Cumbria County Council Conservative members had ‘called-in’ the decision made by the authority’s South Lakeland local committee to begin consultation on where £1.50 an hour parking meters should be introduced in Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness and Kendal.

At a meeting of the council’s scrutiny management board in Carlisle on Monday, Tory leader Councillor James Airey, who represents Ulverston West, and Councillor Bill Wearing, who represents Grange, argued the committee should be made to think again.

But most of the board’s members did not support their proposal.

For a full report from the meeting, see tomorrow's Evening Mail.
