This week's specialist journal is ...

I was at a local authority conference yesterday and received material in the welcome pack which included the latest (14th June) issue of "Surveyor" magazine, the journal for local government highway engineers. Jane Austen's cultural domination is obviously complete given the following quote from page 13.

A CPZ is a controlled parking zone, and yes, sadly, I do know what this all means!
