They will be set up despite less than a third of residents responding to consultation.

Two new resident parking schemes will be set up in the Staffordshire and Accordia areas of Cambridge.

The decision to establish the zones was finalised by city and county councillors yesterday evening (April 18).

Councillors considered feedback from public consultation, which showed support for both schemes. However, less than one third of residents in both areas submitted responses to the consultations.

In Accordia, an area just south of the Botanic Garden made up of 379 households, 124 people responded - 87 per cent in favour and 13 per cent against.

In Staffordshire, which is east of the Grafton centre and includes 86 households, 25 people responded - 96 per cent in favour and 4 per cent against.

Public consultation ran in autumn 2017 and moved to the statutory stage in February 2018.

The schemes will now officially launch in the summer when residents and business owners in Staffordshire and Accordia will be able to apply for parking permits.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership will fund the set-up of the schemes.
