Customers, local residents, businesses and other interested groups are to be consulted on the future of Cambridge City Council’s Park Street multi-storey car and cycle park.
Three options are presented in the consultation. The first option is to repair the existing car park; the second is to build a brand new above-ground multi-storey car park; while the third is to build a new underground car park with residential and/or commercial space above it.
Park Street car park is over 50 years old and the council is considering options because of concerns about its deteriorating structural condition, which would require ongoing and extensive repairs in the future.
Cllr Kevin Blencowe, Executive Councillor for Planning Policy and Transport said: “Park Street car park is an important amenity in the centre of Cambridge for residents and visitors alike, as well as being a valuable asset for the council.
“This consultation will help the council ensure we make the right decision about how the Park Street site can best serve the city in decades to come.”
The consultation period opens on Monday 18 August and closes on Friday 19 September. The results will be reported to the council’s Environment Scrutiny Committee on 14 October, and will be used to help the committee make its decision on the future of the car park.
