Don’t be afraid to speak out

Have your say

Following your excellent article about the parking issues around Sudbury, may I express my hope that all residents who are regularly affected and inconvenienced will realise that they need to speak up.

Write to your council, email your MP, talk to your neighbours and encourage them to make their views heard, speak to the drivers who “park and run” outside your homes.

Look out for announcements of council meetings and go - it’s not a scary process, it’s your chance and your right to be heard by your council.

I know it made a difference to the councillors when our small group of residents spoke at the meeting but, of course, more people would make more impact.
