There will be officers from each of the major housing providers to talk to residents, private owners are also welcome to come along to have a chat”.

PCSO James Fuller said “We work in partnership with all the land lords who own properties in South Cambs, properties in Coolidge Gardens are owned by a larger than normal range of RSLs (registered social landlords). To demonstrate this collaborative approach we wanted to consult, as a group with residents

Cottenham High Street working group – update

Residents from Cottenham High Street, business owners, councillors and police officers met to address the longstanding problem of parking on Tuesday 30th April.

Nearly thirty residents came to air their views and present ideas, along with the manager from the Co-op and Barker’s Bakery.

Sgt Rogerson said “Tackling these issues has been adopted as a local priority. I am delighted that so many people gave up their time to come and brain storm the problem. We will now go and work on a proposal with the Parish Council to present to Cambridgeshire County Council. In the last two weeks since the area was prioritised 15 parking tickets have been given out, and I am sure that this is just the tip of the iceberg”.

Residents reported many concerns including having driveways obstructed and being verbally abused by people when asked to move. Residents are encourgaed to call 101 to report unlawfull parking or obstruction.
