It's just over a year since one of Bristol's most controversial parking schemes was introduced. >Opposition to the Clifton Residents' Parking Zone was so bitter that protesters hired a 25 tonne tank to make their point, and rows with Mayor George Ferguson boiled over into the street.
There's a lot of money in the town, a lot of independent trade but not a lot of parking. The council's solution to stopping commuters dumping their cars all day was to introduce residents parking zones, and pay and display for shoppers. >It's a bitter death knell for businesses, the protesters argued, but the plans went ahead.
Mayor George Ferguson might have been right to introduce it though - because one year on, even Tony Miles - who hired the tank, isn't calling for the scheme to be scrapped.
There are mixed opinions all over Clifton Village about how successful the scheme's been, and which bits of it need changing.>Jemima Milne is a trader, she sees both sides of the argument.
Another of the big unsolved complaints is this.
This is the only zone in the city operating till 9pm. The idea was to help the late-opening businesses. But it's doing the opposite, say pub owners.
The council has made over a half a million pounds from Clifton's machines in twelve months.
So the tank's has gone, some of the anger's subsided, but Clifton's parking zone is here to stay.
