Quotes: 'considerable time to remedy'

Here's a brilliantly ambiguous quote from a Kent Police spokesman regarding the problem of illegal parking in a particular business park:

It’s something we are taking considerable time to remedy

So are Kent Police dedicating a lot of time to fixing this problem, or are they just slow in getting round to it?

I can't remember whether I left the quote in the story. Probably did.

Can you really get that second reading out of that? Because I can't.

I really can. To me, it sounds like another way of admitting 'we're taking ages to fix the problem'...

Might be just me, though.
