Residents Zone To Cause Havoc
The official site have informed Aston Villa supporters that a new Residents'Parking Zone scheme will come into operation from our game against Portsmouth on Saturday 4th March.
The statement explains:
'The scheme prohibits on-street parking in the roads surrounding Villa Park on match days. Large roadside signs will inform you that you are entering the zone, and will also indicate the date on which the scheme is operative.
Birmingham City Council intend to enforce compliance with the scheme by means of fixed penalty tickets and vehicle removals. We would point out that the scheme is not in any way controlled or administered by the club. It is an arrangement between the council and the residents.'
Oh joy, more bedlam. Why aren't the Council of Birmingham proud to have such a fantastic club within it's boundaries? And what other arrangements have they made for match day traffic? Absolutely none knowing the council!
