Parking charges?  Possibly.  Spending the money on trams?  Definitely not

Beautiful but expensive

So, Nottingham Council are toying with the wizard wheeze of charging for parking on private land in their city and then using the proceeds to build a second tram line.

So many issues in such a short space of time.

There’s an argument going around that charging for parking is a surrogate for a congestion charge.  Sounds plausible.  And congestion charging is certainly not something I am necessarily against.

But spending the money on trams!  Oh Dear Lord, no!  It’s another state-funded infrastructure programme and therefore terrible, terrible news.
