Parking wardens bid blow

A BID to introduce parking wardens in Henley to tackle illegal parking is set to fail.

Oxfordshire County Council has said it will look into introducing civil parking enforcement acorss the county as long as all the district and town councils agree to it.

But Cherwell District Council is believed to be against the idea.

Henley town and county councillor David Nimmo Smith said: “It would cost the council about £90,000 and it has been made quite clear that it is to be introduced across the county or not at all.”

Enforcement is currently the responsibility of the police but Henley Town Council believes decriminalising it would free up officers’ time.
