Kenilworth Waitrose looks to abandon the current parking process with anpr (number plate recognition) system
Did you know that Waitrose Kenilworth has put in an application to have ANPR cameras fitted at their store car park in order to replace the current system which appears from a consumer point of view to works well.
The new process will be managed by Britannia Parking who it can be assumed will also administer any penalties incurred and whilst it’s not unreasonable to take actions that prevent abuse of the Car park , given the issues at Sainsburys down the road recently you wonder what the motives really are.
Strangely all of the Kenilworth District Councillors and the Town Council don’t seem to regard it as an issue , however Cllr Trevor Wright (Stoneleigh, Ashow & Leek Wootton) has raised an objection with concerns about how the car park will be operated and more importantly the control of the data , however he is alone in his actions.
But you can look at the application and Cllr Wrights objection yourself by going to
and put in W/19/1591 to see the full application and objection,
Seemingly Kenilworth is becoming a ANPR haven at Supermarkets with Sainsburys, Tesco Layes Lane and now Waitrose all using ANPR, the increasing concern is are they become profit opportunities and is our data really safe?
You decide, and if you want to understand what this means or object you can by following the link above.
Over the weekend its been noticed that certain political parties and individuals are making claims that they have been heavily involved with the issues around HS2.
This is simply NOT TRUE and we have been deafened by their silence , on the other hand, for a number of years now Cllr Pam Redford & Cllr Trevor Wright have been ABSOLUTELY committed to supporting the Community to fight and make the best we can with regards to HS2.
In the past 10 days alone , Cllr Pam Redford has visited the protesters encampment in Cubbington.
Both Cllr Trevor Wright & Cllr Pam Redford has taken the matters up with the relative ministers involved , including Warwickshire County Council, Warwick District Council and the local MPs.
Additionally Cllr Pam Redford has been liaising with the Police to ensure the safety of all during this difficult period and both have been talking with and discussing the issues with all of our local communities.
This is in ADDITITON to all the work over the past year with the community, HS2. Sir Mark Worthington and government ministers all of which has been a contributory factor to bringing about the review NOW TAKING PLACE.
We have ACTULLY being working and supporting our community for a number of years now which those involved actually know what is going on. (as we have always said we would)
As I have said until now the silence of others have been deafening, but now its a bit more public there seems to a number of people claiming to be heavily involved which is simply not true.
Cllr Pam Redford and Cllr Trevor Wright are working tirelessly to both challenge HS2 or if forced to accept it to make sure that we get the best we possibly can for OUR Communities.
We don't just talk about it for political traction WE ACTUALLY DO IT.
We are YOUR local COUNCILLORS working on issues that are important to you (just as we always have)

Following on from last weeks’ notice about “The Flu jab” I had mine yesterday at Layes Lane Pharmacy in Kenilworth” which was most convenient.
Remember they can do this which saves a visit to your GP , it’s worth also noting that these days Pharmacies’ can competently deal with a wide variety of things and ailments in a professional and competent way all of which eases the pressures on our hard pressed GPS, and if they think you really need to go to the GP they will tell you.
So for relatively minor elements or just good advice your local pharmacy is the place to go.
