Yellow lines update

Amanda and fencing

New knee-length ‘diamond’ fencing

The yellow lines in Cavendish Avenue and Baldock Way and the disabled parking bay on Baldock Way have now been painted — bar some small sections yet to be done. This is because commuters have been ignoring cones placed on the road and parking their cars in the section of road where the lines were to go. Low-level fencing for the verges in the middle section of Baldock Way is also now in place.

Traffic regulation orders for parking restrictions in Gunhild Close and Fendon Close have been advertised. If there are no objections the restrictions will be brought in; if there are any, then they will be determined by the Cambridge Joint Area Traffic Committee when it next meets.

After a year of talking, the County Council unveils its Parking Plan

QUEEN EDITH CHAPEL THIS WEDNESDAY

Most residents of Queen Edith’s will know that parking is a big problem in this area. Lib Dem councillors have for many years been calling for action from Conservative-run Cambridgeshire County Council, the council responsible for parking management and highways.

Last summer the County agreed to set up a parking review group, to look at all of the south of the city, including Queen Edith’s, Trumpington, Romsey and some streets in Coleridge. Cllr Jean Swanson and I attended the first meetingabout a year ago, and since then Cllr Geoff Heathcock has represented Queen Edith’s on that group.

The County officers have visited twice, once to our South Area meeting at my request and again to meet residents in Queen Edith’s. It was made very clear that people were impatient with the long delays and looking for solutions soon.
