- Only visitors with paid permits can use the constructed parking bays which are parallel to the roads from 8am to 6pm, 7 days a week
- All other areas are restricted parking areas during the hours of 8am to 6pm
Trumpington Meadows Community comment
In the interests of transparency it was disappointing to note that there was no representation from a Trumpington Councillor at the meeting. This is particularly concerning given that our elected Councillor Donald Adey who resides in Fife, Scotland appears to rarely attend council meetings. However Councillor Taylor did attempt to speak on behalf of the residents of Trumpington Meadows to ensure that residents were consulted properly but to no avail as the Liberal Democrats were out voted by the Labour Councillors.
There was a general feeling of disbelief amongst the members of the public present at the meeting that things were not properly discussed. What’s more there appears to be an on-going issue with the boundary of Cambridge City Council and South Cambridge District Council that we would like to be resolved. Trumpington Meadows residents who reside in South Cambridge District Council will not be covered by this scheme.
We encourage all Trumpington Meadows residents to get involved with Trumpington Meadows Community. Please check back regularly for details of the next community meeting.
