With regard to the parking fine situation, it is your local councillors who set policy, not council employees, who have to carry out instructions. So there are two simple solutions:
1) Take your business where you will be more welcome.
2) When your local councillor comes tapping on your door touting for your vote, make your views known, then tell him/her in no uncertain terms where to go.
Two good old fashioned Ilkeston words should do the trick which roughly translated mean “Please go away,” or “Not today thank you.”
