Eluned Parrott AM, Cllr. Ed Bridges and Ashley Wood are compiling a petition calling on Cardiff's Labour council to sort out Gabalfa's parking mess.

Residents in Gabalfa are suffering from parking misery - and the blame can be laid squarely at the door of Cardiff's Labour councillors.

Since 2012, the Gabalfa Focus Team have tried to work with Cardiff Council's Labour administration to resolve local parking problems - but progress has been very slow. The inaction has been attributed to Labour's internal politics which has seen three different Cabinet Members dealing with the matter in just two years! The party also recently ousted its Council Leader, further delaying the matter.

As a result, local Lib Dems have set up a petition to allow residents to have their say.

Eluned Parrott AM said: "Thanks to Labour's infighting, residents in our area have been stuck in a state of limbo, with the council refusing to get to grips with parking problems. Despite the best effort of local Lib Dems, the council has done precisely nothing."

Following questioning from Cllr. Ed Bridges, Cardiff Council said that they have no plans to revisit the current parking arrangements before 2017 - and, astonishingly, claimed that the current arrangements are effective!

Local resident, Ashley Wood, said: "If the Labour-run council think that the current resident-only parking arrangements are fit for purpose, they've obviously not visited our area recently. It's high time something was done."

Don't forget - you can do your bit to address local parking problems by signing our petition!

Labour's timeline of shame!
