JOHN Ready states in his January 24th letter that Saffron Walden Town Council "has not shown impartiality" in the editing of Option C in the market square proposals consultation document.

What Mr Ready does know (but is not saying) is that the council agonised for many weeks over the wording of Option C to make it as even-handed as possible.

So, Mr Ready, in search of an even more equitable solution let us not forget that l Option C will lose six valuable parking spaces (like gold dust for those wanting to make a quick visit to banks, local shops, etc.) and l The 'musical chairs' which currently take places at very slow speed will in fact still happen, but at high speed, down Hill Street, Common Hill and Church Street, using even more fuel and increasing risks to other road users, including pedestrians.
