How right Councillor Lewington is concerning the car parking charges in Newtown.

Our overpaid, over staffed and unaccountable council possibly spend more time staring out of the window watching the sunlight and shadows dancing around the uncollected waste and recycling bins and pondering on how to justify the next council tax rise than stimulating trade in Newtown.

Newtown should be a major attraction for the county with its position on the river.

It is so sad to see the town degrading into a fast food carry out centre.
