East Chesterton parking - further notes

Just to clear up a few things about the proposed parking controls that Owen Dunn posted about ( http://www.cambridgelibdems.org.uk/parking_bays_on_your_street )

As you’re aware Jamie Dalzell has supported me, Cllr Ian Manning, in two meetings I held recently.
