PARKING CONTROLS - Changes to car parking in Cambridge, by reducing parking availability or increasing charges.

  • Estimated Congestion Reduction
    4% for an increased charge of £5 per use (illustrative example)
  • £16 million for an increased charge by £5 per use (illustrative example) 

Positive

  • Encourages some use of public transport, walking and cycling
  • Could free up space for other uses
  • May lead to shorter queues for car parks

Negative

  • Required reduction in congestion won't be met by this method alone
  • Revenue from parking charges will be reduced if fewer people choose to park
