APPROVED plans to introduce pay & display parking in Weston-super-Mare have been called in.

North Somerset Council approved plans to introduce 27 machines in Weston town centre last week.

However, Liberal Democrat councillors who opposed the plan have since requested the scheme be examined  by the  strategic planning and economic development policy and scrutiny panel.

Lib Dem group leader Mike Bell said: "We have decided to call it in so we can challenge some of the aspects of the scheme, particularly the charging policy and the impact it will have on residents, but also the wider issue of parking.

"Given that there was serious cross-party criticism at the recent executive meeting, the scrutiny meeting will give local people and businesses a good opportunity to voice their concerns."

The panel will discuss the scheme at its next meeting on Monday at 2pm.
