Complaints launched against four Brighton and Hove councillors

First published in News

A businessman has launched an official complaint against four councillors.

Adam Campbell, who owns Gill’s Home and Garden in Western Road, Hove, has been in disagreement with Brighton and Hove City Council for almost a year over loading bays in the busy road.

The local authority said it needed to introduce a ban on the north side of the road to keep traffic moving.

Mr Campbell collected more than 600 signatures against the plan, claiming it was unsafe as it forced him to carry heavy objects across the street.

He claims the Green administration took the decision out of “pure political bigotry and spite” after finding out he stood for the Conservatives in 2011 elections.

An official complaint has been lodged against councillors Ian Davey, Peter West, Phelim MacCafferty and Ollie Sykes.

Yo ho ho the authority needs to introduce a ban on parking bays to keep the traffic moving? What about Lewes Rd "improvement" both ways from the Gyratory to the Amex? Traffic queues with 2 lanes at rush hour as it is, without reducing it to one lane. Strikes me very clearly that we need to introduce a ban on half witted green policies to keep the traffic moving!
And yes, there does seem to be an element of lets stitch up the tory. No finesse.

So his publicity stunt of asking them to resign through this newspaper didn't work. Shocking. At least he's put his money where his mouth is and made a formal complain. I would like to see more of those and less whining in the comments.

Outside his shop the traffic does get held up with buses and lorries. Can they not look at staggering the loading bays along each side of the road. After all there are bus stops on each side of the road which can stop the traffic if a lorry is parked opposite.

He mentions Phelim Maccafferty. Is that Mr Maccafferty, of Mrs, or Miss, or Sir, or Lady? Whoops!! Phelim/Philomena doesn't allow us to use such crass terminology, I'll be next for their vindictiveness.
