Council bosses ‘scrooges’ claim

Have your say

RULING Labour councillors in Sheffield have been branded ‘scrooges’ by opposition Liberal Democrats for failing to bring in free festive parking in the city centre.

Surrounding towns such as Rotherham are offering free parking but Sheffield is only offering reduced prices at its car parks before Christmas.

The issue was debated at yesterday’s full council meeting after a motion was brought by the Lib Dems. Labour said there is not enough spare money in the council’s budget.
