Hundreds of residents packed into the Queen Edith Chapel yesterday to view the County Council’s ideas for sorting out parking problems in our area. These are the County’s response to longstanding pressure from Lib Dem councillors over the years to address the saturation of our streets by commuters.
The proposals are informed by comments made by residents at previous meetings and from the local colleges and hospital. The ‘South Area Parking Plan’ has been worked up over the past year.
Many residents were disappointed there were not more firm proposals, but there were new schemes for Red Cross Lane/ Greenlands area, Baldock Way, Godwin Close and Nightingale Avenue. County Council officers were present to answer questions, and residents were invited to fill in a short survey to comment on parking patterns in their own street, and to give their views on residents’ parking schemes.
There are two more chances to see the exhibition:
- Monday 26 November – Scout Hut, Flamsteed Road
- Thursday 29 November – Village Hall, Trumpington, at the junction with Beverley Way
You can also look at it all on line, on the County Council’s website. We are also hoping that the plans can be in Rock Road Library.
Comments open till 21st December.
