Charges for on-street parking in some roads in Cambridge are due to start this Sunday, September 21, to help provide a regular turn-over of spaces for visitors and support local traders.

Cambridgeshire County Council Highways and Infrastructure Committee agreed the changes in July this year as part of a parking charges review.

Currently there are no charges for on street parking but the Committee heard how there has been a considerable rise in the number of people visiting and shopping in the city on a Sunday.

The fact that bays are currently free has led to them being used to park in all day which prevents anyone else from using them. The Committee agreed that charges will be brought in to help turn-over of parking spaces to help cater for the demand and support local businesses.

The new charges only apply to some roads in the city centre and surrounding area of Cambridge accounting for 800 of the 1600 bays available. See table below.
