parking charges update - success!

On Tuesday the County Council's Highways committee considered four parking issues (click on the link for the report):  

  • the ending of the parking charge at the Park & Ride sites
  • on-street parking charges
  • residents' parking scheme permit charges for both residents' permits and visitors' permits
  • a plan to develop more residents' parking schemes in the city

Up to this point Labour and Conservative Councillors had been pushing upping permit charges and pushing parking schemes, with Lib Dem Councillors more cautions on both fronts, and objecting in principle to the stratospheric 88% rise in visitor permits.

A problem solved: ticketing made clearer

Further to http://www.cambridgelibdems.org.uk/when_is_a_ticket_to_london_not_a_ticket_to_london and a number of emails with customer services at Abelio, I'm really pleased to say that significant improvements have been made to the ticket terminals.

The in station booths now warn you when selecting Greater Anglia tickets with a pop up and are clearly marked.

Unfortunately, Network Rail's journey planner doesn't make it clear, something I've taken up with them.

Victoria Road Parking zone

Recently I (Chesterton Cllr Ian Manning) became aware that residents nearby were to have parking restrictions – but that their Labour Councillor hadn’t asked them. I put a stop to this as the area came within my Chesterton County division.

 Separately, Labour Councillors have marked your area to get restrictions: so our activist Jamie Dalzell is really keen to check you are aware, and aware of what form they will take.
