Parking and the use of public space

"Public space should be allocated for people to park their car

If you’ve ever cycled, walked or driven around Soho, you’ll recognise there isn’t much space. The pavements are tiny, there’s nowhere to leave your bike and driving here is a nightmare.

Why then is it, that with such limited space available, it is agreed that it is a fundamental right for the residents here to use public space to park their car?

Residents of Soho have made the conscious decision to live in the very heart of the city. Everything they could possibly want or need is walking distance away. If it isn’t, then there are plentiful public transport options.

One person, parking one car outside their home, is inconveniencing 100′s if not 1000′s of people."
