"Eric Pickles attacks councils putting motorists off high streets"

Link to Daily Telegraph

"Mr Pickles, the Communities and Local Government Secretary, said that 'draconian' parking policies and pointless 'street clutter' have led to motorists abandoning town centres.

"He is calling on local authorities to ban speed bumps and parking bollards that put people off travelling to local shops.

"Town Halls must also reduce parking charges that 'undermine the vitality of town centres', Mr Pickles added.

"The Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) will this week issue new planning guidance, that he hopes will force councils to make high streets more car-friendly."
