County review puts parking on hold

February 12, 2007 9:41 AM

Traffic Committee Chair, Councillor Alan Baker, has today demanded that the County Council stops stalling on Cambridge's parking policy.

Coun Baker, the Lib Dem City Councillor for Queen Edith's, has written to County Cabinet member John Reynolds to demand that fast progress is made on the long-running review of parking policy in the city.

Coun Baker commented:

"Residents all over the city have been waiting for a long time for the County Council to consider their applications for residents parking schemes and the County Council has suspended all applications until the review of car parking policy is completed.

"This review is making very slow progress and it looks as though there will not be a new policy until the end of 2007 at the very earliest. This is just not good enough. Residents are being kept on hold by the County Council.

"I have asked Councillor Reynolds when he intends to lift the embargo on new residents parking proposals."
