A new parking strategy for Huntingdonshire has come closer to fruition after councillors approved its first key stage.

Huntingdonshire District Council’s cabinet agreed a “parking vision” document which will help guide implementation of the full strategy, expected to be in place next year.

The vision says the council will support the sustainability and growth of its towns and villages through the provision of convenient, easily accessible car parks which are safe and secure, clean and well maintained, use technology to assist drivers and help promote alternative fuel and travel methods.

Councillor Jim White, executive councillor for operations, said: “Parking is central to supporting the continued economic growth and vitality of our market towns and our district as a whole.

“We are still in the early stages of our parking review but now a vision has been agreed we can begin to work on developing a strategy with all the evidence we have gathered.”

Cllr White said: “Once we have a strategic plan in place next year we can look at enhanced parking options that properly reflect the needs of our district 
and support continued economic growth.”
