St Asaph Street – Have your say

Some businesses in St Asaph Street have approached the CCC asking for more parking (53 more parks) to go onto the street beside the cycleway. The CCC are asking for comment from the public on two options: A few small changes to increase safety (and not parking) or a million dollars worth of work to put in the extra parks at ratepayers cost.
