Letter: Parking rules are killing the town

I wanted to get across the declining state of Ilkeston and how, while the other towns around Ilkeston seem to be booming, the council here seems to be killing its own trade by putting these parking restrictions in place.

There seems to be more people shopping on Bath Street on a Sunday when you should be able to park outside the shops.

I think that if we keep restricting shoppers from spending their money on Bath Street it will not be long before the last shopper turns out the lights.
