Parking woes in residential streets


Trumpington residents continue to suffer from parking woes following the Conservatives’ controversial decision to introduce a parking charge at local Park and Ride sites.

Local Lib Dems, who opposed the new parking charge, are continuing to press the County Council to rethink its policy. Since the introduction of the new £1 charge, use of Cambridge Park and Rides has dropped dramatically.

Lib Dem City Councillor Zoe O’Connell said: “Aside from the awful decision, what’s worse is the lack of remorse shown by the Conservatives for inflicting these parking problems on local people.

“The new charge has discouraged shoppers and commuters from using the Park and Ride, meaning they’re clogging up our residential streets. We’ll continue to make reversing this appalling decision a top priority.”
