I write to you as someone who has already registered my comments on the Local Development Framework.
I should like to draw you attention to the article on page 2 of the Gazette dated Friday 30th May which tells of the fate of motorists trapped in the multi-storey car park by the volume of traffic on Blackhall Road.
That this happened on a Wednesday, market day, and in a Bank Holiday week mean that it is not a regular occurrence.
However if the expansion of housing in SLDC along with the potential expansion in the LDNP and the YDNP take place without any remedial work on Kendal's traffic flow I am convinced that this unfortunate event will become a regular happening in Kendal. It only takes a small percentage increase in traffic to move from a normal flow to a total standstill.
If this were allowed to become the norm I foresee the collapse of Kendal as a tourist destination with all the economic woe that would cause.
