YOUR article (June 7) regarding the proposed residents' permit parking scheme in the Priory Road area (pictured) of Huntingdon is not quite correct.
There was not a non-response from residents to the scheme.
They have consistently supported it over a number of years during numerous consultations by the county council.
I can assure you they were fully aware of the implications and the possibility of displaced parking
The decision not to go ahead with residents' parking permits was misguided, particularly as it was the county council's own scheme devised several months ago. They even included a permit parking scheme in Primrose Lane which was not requested by residents.
The reason for the reduced parking spaces was because the county council insisted on installing so many double yellow lines in the roads concerned.
