In response to Colin Thorne’s email, it is not Cotswold District Council that issues penalty notices in the market place, it is Gloucestershire County Council -

YOUR LETTERS: There needs to be parking for motorcycles in market place

I agree that directions should be supplied so visiting bikers can find appropriate parking.

I’ll see what I can do as a local councillor.

Finally I declare an interest as I once revived a fixed penalty notice for parking my motorcycle in the market place.

I thought and still think it was unfair.
