Wiltshire Council Sunday Parking Charges

The libdems in Wiltshire Council have a current petition to remove Sunday and Bank Holiday parking charges.  That can be found here for those who agree its a bad idea and and want to sign it.

The Gazette and Hearld say this is expected to raise 1.43m which is an interesting figure.  Wiltshire Council spend ~8m on the salaries of those earning over £50k per year.  And if you look at those at the top, historically from 2011 to 2018 (figures from Wiltshire Council web site) then for those top ~20 people it can be seen that they were on 70k-80k in the main back in 2008 but are now on 100k or even 140k.  That's a 25% rise at least during Austerity when everyone else's pay was capped.  Nice work if you get but for public servants it seems they are putting themselves first, everyone else second.
