Trumpington Meadows Parking Controls Petition

Lib Dems call for deadline extension and door-to-door delivery of Council’s parking proposals for Trumpington Meadows

The County Council is proposing on-street parking control proposals for Trumpington Meadows, including visitor permit holder parking in signed parking bays every day from 8am to 6pm.

However, the proposals have been poorly publicised. There has been no door-to-door delivery of the public notice, with the Council relying on residents spotting it online or in the Cambridge Evening News. Given this limited circulation, the 15th December deadline for submissions is very tight.

Concerns raised by residents include which roads would be included (with Renard Way wrongly labelled as Falcon Road on the Council’s parking plan); whether the visitor bays would be clearly marked; and how it would be clearly displayed that parking in other bays belonging to householders is prohibited.

Objections to the proposal, reference PR0393 – viewable at https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/residents/travel-roads-and-parking/roads-and-pathways/roadworks-and-faults/traffic-regulation-orders/ – should be sent to policyandregulation@cambridgeshire.gov.uk

Philip Allen, Ian Sollom, Zoë O’Connell, Dan Hilken and the local Lib Dem team will continue to press for a proper consultation of all Trumpington Meadows residents.  If you feel as strongly as us, please sign this petition.

We the undersigned call upon the County Council to extend the deadline for objections to the on-street parking control proposals for Trumpington Meadows and to deliver public notices door-to-door to each household on the estate.
