Tolerant and long suffering

How can anyone suggest Whitby residents are greedy and petty.

A better description would be tolerant and long suffering.

Ours must be the only council who refuses to charge for parking in prime positions along the west cliff.

Imagine how the revenue accrued would benefit the local residents.

Long term parkers using more than one space would move elsewhere which would free up spaces for others, including locals, who believe it or not also like to drive to West Cliff and look at the sea.

I understand Brighton charges up to £20 a day.

Imagine how much income we could be raising to help Whitby ratepayers most of whom are far from affluent and definitely NOT greedy or petty.
