Andrew Helps outside the NEXT development.
Labour activist Andrew Helps has been working hard since the Borough Council Elections.
Following a tip off that staff at the new Next store were being advised to park their cars on residential roads rather than the store’s car park (specifically Berrywood & Downscroft Gardens), Andrew contacted the Next Head Office to investigate.
After various communications with the company, Andrew now has an assurance that staff should NOT park on residential roads in the area.
Andrew says: “This is good news and shows the importance of being pro-active. I have agreed with Next that I will notify them if it looks like there is any problem in the future.”
If you believe that Next employees are parking on the residential roads in your area please let us know using the details on this facebook page. While Labour supports the increased employment brought by Next it cannot be to the detriment of residents.
