Surely RUH parking can be hastle free
What an intriguing little mystery was raised by Mrs R Sims' Chronicle letter recently, concerning the perennial question of parking at the RUH.
Mrs Sims wrote that when she asked of a workman building the new disabled car park "Why aren't you constructing a multi storey car park?", his reply was, "The council won't allow it".
The workman went on to say: "They don't want even more cars driving through Bath, when there are plenty of buses to convey people to the RUH".
Couple this with what Howard Jones, the director of estates at the RUH, said in a Chronicle letter earlier this year: "The size of the car park will be determined by planning regulations but our hope is that we will be allowed to increase the number of spaces available" and you begin to wonder what on earth is going on.

So who exactly is the villain in the piece in this car parking fiasco?If it is B&NES artificially keeping the car parking facilities low, then the B&NES cabinet member for transport must say so.
Bureaucrats seem to have lost sight of the fact people only go to the hospital because they are sick; their relatives visit them there because they are, and the staff by necessity have to be there.
Is it really beyond the wit of the authorities, when man has been to the moon, to make the RUH experience hassle free?
