But when was it?

York Press: . .

DARREN RICHARDSON, City of York Council’s director of city and environmental services, has stated that the signs at Coppergate are of the legal standard.

Can he please tell me through the letters page when these signs went up and when the sign on the road at Clifford Street was painted? Dates, please.

S Mortimer, Cosmo Avenue, Heworth, York.

I'm sure Darren Richardson will not respond to this, and quite right too.

It would be an abuse of ratepayers money if Mr Richardson spent time doing a bit of pointless research on behalf of S. Mortimer

Maybe he dosent want to respond because he knows the signs were put up after the restrictions started in Coppergate. jonthan get your facts right before you reply with stupid comments about things you know nothing about

He wouldn't have to do this, as he has hundreds of staff in his directorate churning out strats and data for reports, most of which are ostensibly classified as confidential. The figures they don't disclose are the ones which show that Labour's policies are a failure, or that would invalidate their policies.

Six months ago, Coun Merrett instructed the Assistant Director of Housing to publish a redacted version of the Get York Building survey. This was originally classified as 'confidential'. The survey still hasn't been published - I wonder why ?

The signs went up at least 4 days before the ANPR cameras were fitted in place at the Clifford Street traffic island; and before that there were Variable Message Signs which clearly read "no vehicles" during daytime hours. All these people who keep whinging about Coppergate restrictions are only complaining because they used to drive through illegally during the restrictions without being reprimanded, but now because they are receiving a fixed penalty notice then suddenly it's an 'outrage'.
