MADAM - The new Leisure Centre is increasingly popular and it's good to see it so.

However this has meant that parking at the site is difficult. The lower car park is now open but people are using every available space, not just designated bays. The verges and landscaped areas are getting damaged.

Last night it was awkward to drive round the car park due to cars on the pavements and even in the motorcycle bays.

Parking on school drive is also being abused with cars parking illegally.

When is the upper parking area due to open and when will the pay machines be used?

Will genuine centre users/members receive any discount?

Drivers need to show greater respect and only use the marked parking bays.
