The boroughs of Surrey Heath and neighbouring Rushmoor are rarely a subject for the mainstream media.
Today is somewhat different. The story of the lack of access to a roof-top car park in the Queensmead shopping development in Farnborough has gone viral on social media. Of course the main daily press titles love a story like this. Here’s how it’s being treated,
- Daily Mail: The town centre car park that you can only get to ON FOOT
- Independent: Farnborough residents anger over car park only accessible by foot
- BBC: Empty Farnborough car park ‘only accessible on foot’
- Daily Mirror: This car park ALWAYS has lots of free space
One can understand the reasons, though that won’t stop there being some red faces in Rushmoor Council. Here’s a google image [click to expand] of the car park – notice no access ramp, or cars.
