PERIPHERAL parking is the plan for Huntingdon. This became clear at a meeting of Huntingdon Town Council planning committee when it heard a presentation on behalf of D E Clegg in respect of that company's planning application to build 110 flats, library and office building involving the demolition of the existing library.
This is one of several applications which will increase demand and reduce public parking in the town.
What was not made clear was where this "periphery", its car parks and means of access to the town centre are to be located - or at what stage they are to be provided.
These are points which voters will wish to have clarified at the local elections in May. They must surely demand to know where their individual councillors and candidates stand on the issue, which concerns not only the elderly but parents who have to transport young families

Is there to be a park and ride facility or is the attitude "park and on yer bike"?
Has the plan been finally accepted as policy, and by whom? This is a key question for shoppers, retailers and any company looking at the possibility of developing a department store in Huntingdon.

Is peripheral parking an example of how Huntingdon town is on the periphery of district and county thinking?
