PLANS to introduce a two-hour parking limit outside a hair salon in WGC have been blasted as "completely unreasonable".

Nigel Smith, who owns Changes in Marsden Road, is concerned his business could be badly affected if Welwyn Hatfield Council decides to establish such parking restrictions in front of his shop.

The 47-year-old said the bulk of his trade involved colouring, a process that could often take more than THREE hours.

He said: "We feel it is completely unreasonable, un-thought out and irrational for the council to install this outside a salon, where haircuts can take three or more hours.

"How can that be deemed reasonable?"
