SIR - With our station redevelopment pending, I would like to again bring attention of those who are hopefully representing us of unacceptable, dangerous and sloppy commuter parking in Meadowbank (20 to 25 vehicles every day).

I simply cannot understand how First Capital Connect is allowed to charge for its parking in such a way that creates a situation which encourages passengers to park on all residential roads near the station. They have the land on both sides of the station so why not use it for parking. Why should we put up with this situation, I want to see some of the councillors on the council putting pressure on the authorities on behalf of residents. For example limited parking over mid day, residents parking only, parking meters or perhaps Meadowbank could have a barrier and charge what the railway company charge!!

I would like to add my strong support to the views expressed by R Burwash of Meadowbank in 'Welcome to Hitchin in Doom' regarding the unacceptable appearance of the railway bridge and surround considering it is a main approach to the town its still unacceptably ugly.

So come on Walsworth Councillors, if you are really worth your vote and accept any responsibility, as that popular TV cook would say 'Let's be having you!' you have no more important problems.
