Five Trees: how should we protect it

Key_5trees.pngFive Trees is a small, but much loved green area between Fen Road, Cam Causeway, Cheney Way and Lents Way, shown in
the map on the right. The north of the city and East Chesterton, in particular, are lacking in green space and none should be lost!

We want to ensure it is protected from any threat of being built on by thinking about ways we can further improve the space - and we want to know what you think!

West Chesterton Parking update - 2019-11-28

166.png
I'm very aware that I've not provided an update recently on the potential introduction of a residents parking scheme in West Chesterton.  This blog attempts to address this.
Due to numerous issues, including general workloads, and some other consultations that have overrun, the next formal step will be the County Council writing to residents in the Ascham Parking Area asking for their consent to expand their scheme to include the Chesterton Triangle and the Hurst Park Estate (inc those parts of Arbury road that are in the Chesterton County Division).
The area this scheme would encompass is shown approximately here.
At the moment, the best information I have is that this will not happen until early January.  Read on for some questions that I've been asked about this recently with answers.
