I SEE from The Crow (February 28) that Melbourn Parish Council wish not to see the renewal of the licence of a kebab van that uses the village car park.

Could this have anything to do with the parish council wanting to purchase the car park, so it can demolish it and build a new parish council office and hall?

We as a village are currently in a great situation regarding halls.

We have the United Reformed Church, as well as the soon to be opened re-furbished All Saints community hall, but we are short of places to be at night.

The kebab van is a nightly ritual for some of our youngsters and getting rid of the van will not solve any perceived youngster problems, only move them elsewhere.

The car park is currently used to 100 per cent capacity by the parents of pupils at the two local schools. While this new hall is being built, the main car park of Melbourn is probably going to be out of use. Where do all those cars go?

Currently we have free parking in the village, which encourages our local shops, lets hope the new hall will not mean we have to start paying to park and use the community facilities.
