Regarding the report 'Car chaos' (Gazette, January 25), it is very important for readers to know that whatever parking problems we face in Windermere it is because of how amazing and wonderful our town is.

We have the best food and drink establishments, fantastic services such as solicitors, accountants, estate agents and insurance brokers. the town is alive, bustling, and on the up and up.

Windermere Town Council has been proactive in looking at the parking issues we have and I applaud their work. I'm excited to be working on some of the solutions, but now, as ever, we are very much open for business.

Moreover the remedial actions we take to address these issues will actually add to the reasons so many want to live, work and visit in our fantastic town.
