AS a resident of Westminster and on a very low wage, I already struggle with the cost of living in Westminster. The additional cost of 200 pounds per year for the new motorcycle charges is most unfair and extreme.

As a resident of Westminster, I HAVE to move around to work, do the shopping and get on with daily activities. I choose to buy a scooter in order to get things more efficiently, to lower my impact on the traffic (instead of getting a car).

The attitude of Westminster council, by imposing a compulsory tax, is illogical. In one way they pretend they want to promote a better traffic , whilst they tax motorcycles which have the ability to do exactly that.

Even Chelsea and Kensington council has a different policy of only having few parking spaces with needing permits; the rest being , as they were, free for all motorcycles.

This is why, as a resident of Westminster, I strongly object to this proposal and demands its complete withdrawal.

I hope you will be able to report this outrageous tax and my opposition to it in your paper,
