"On behalf of the Stanage Forum Steering Group, I have made strong representations to the Authority's Access & Recreation Service that under no circumstances must the pay & display machine at Hollin Bank (Plantation) be enforced. The fact that it is not enforced is a critical part of the parking plan agreed by all through the Stanage Forum. Please therefore advise people to continue as before and park in the car park, rather than on the verges to avoid a possible fine. If there is any sign that the Forum's comments are to be ignored, believe me, I will let everyone know! (I have also put forward similar objections regarding Curbar Gap but I have no say over any other pay & display car parks I'm afraid). "
