Great, they'll be able to turf over another car park. How about closing the multi-storey and turn its access and exit road into giant helter skelters. Lets see what sparkling ideas they come up with this time to create more traffic congestion and misery for Taunton's motorist workers and shoppers.

Thought they were going to sell county hall and lease it back a a small fortune. £180k a year and this is the most imaginative way of sorting their budgets the chief can think of. Sell all we own, that's long term thinking.

Can't they sell one of the park nd rides to edfe as I know they want one.
