RESIDENTS of two Huntingdon estates have been pleading with councillors to rid their streets of commuters avoiding paying to park.
A petition signed by 118 people in the Lake Way area of Stukeley Meadows urged the district's traffic management committee, made up of members of Cambridgeshire County Council and Huntingdonshire District Council, to ban parking for two hours in the middle of the working day.
The residents complained of "the persistent and increasing problem of commuters using Lake Way as a free all-day car park". The daily rate in the station car park is £5.20.
A similar scheme at Scholar's Avenue, off Brampton Road, introduced three years ago, rid the area of commuters' vehicles.
This is the latest in a series of petitions from residents of Lake Way. They say the problem has become particularly acute because of development work in Ullswater, near the railway line. The developer, Freshwater Estates, has introduced strict curbs on times at which deliveries can be made to the site.
Meanwhile, a similar number of people living at Hinchingbrooke Park have asked for double yellow lines to be extended at Christie Drive and Hinchingbrooke Country Park Road.
