Hot topic of the month...!

Parking... you may have received notice today that the car park will be chargeable from 1st April 2006 at a rate of £730+vat per space (initially restricted to one per office). What are your views on this? There seems to be some cloaked reasoning that these charges will be levied due to increased security because people have been complaining about vehicles being vandalised. Why does it take the management so long to react to vehicles which appear to be nothing to do with resident businesses being left for prolonged periods or being dumped in the car park, have they not realised that these have attracted the thieves/vandals in the first place? Also the boundary fences have "gaps" where 'vandals' can easily access the car park even when locked. What about the array of cameras? Have these vandals not been recorded?

Whats on at Excel in March?
