Proposed parking changes in Ely

East Cambridgeshire District Council’s Commercial Services Committee meets next Wednesday (17 May) at 5:30pm.  The agenda includes proposals for a new off-street parking places order for the following purposes.

  1. Update the car parking map for Barton Road to show the changes to market trader parking arrangements and the removal of all but one of the coach spaces.
  2. Include the new car park at The Dock (near Angel Drove car park and the railway station).
  3. Include cashless parking as an alternative payment method at Angel Drove and The Dock.
  4. Increase the Fixed Penalty Notice to £70, as agreed in the council budget in February.
  5. Extend the waiting time at the public car park at the Council Offices during office hours; it’s currently 30 minutes and will now be an hour.

All of these proposals will require a 21 day public consultation period, after which the proposals will come back to the committee for final approval.

The actual draft order is here.
