Resident Parking Scheme installations

After a Resident Parking Scheme has been through the public and statutory consultation stages, and has received final approval from the Cambridge City Joint Area Committee, we will then arrange for signs and road markings to be installed. Once this work has been completed, we will then advise residents on how and when to apply for parking permits.

Information for residents

Before the installation work is due to take place, residents in the scheme area will receive a letter from our Highway Projects team containing the schedule of works. Please note that work is weather dependent and the schedule may be subject to change.

In order to prevent delays and increased costs, we ask residents to make sure that no vehicles are parked on the road in the areas and on the dates specified.

A separate letter is also sent out to residents by our Parking Services team to explain how to apply for resident and visitor parking permits. There will be sufficient time to apply and obtain any permits that are required before the parking scheme goes live and any enforcement action is taken. Residents will not be able to apply for permits until they receive a letter from Parking Services.
