The request was successful.

Dear Cambridge City Council,

I would like to know if there are priority parking places for Cambridge City Council employees and/or Cambridge councillors within the city. I refer in particular to an underground car park in Emmanuel Street which I have been told is used by the city council.
If this is the case are these places subsidised and at what cost.

Yours faithfully,

(CCC) Parking in Cambridge Cambridge for council employees and councillors

I would like to know if there are priority parking places for Cambridge
City Council employees and/or Cambridge councillors within the city. I
refer in particular to an underground car park in Emmanuel Street which I
have been told is used by the city council.
If this is the case are these places subsidised and at what cost.

Thank you for your request for information above, which we have dealt with
under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I hope the following will answer your query:

I believe the underground car park accessed from Emmanual Street is used
by the offices of St Andrews House on St Andrews Street. I can advise you
that Cambridge City Council does not have any offices in this location and
therefore will not have access to this car park.

No allocated or priority parking is available to Cambridge City
Councillors however parking permits are issued allowing access to a
specified multi-storey car park in the city centre. These permits are
issued without charge to the Councillor.
No allocated or priority parking is available to Cambridge City Council
employees however parking permits are issued to staff with health related
issues or where a car is required to complete essential Council duties.
These permits are issued to allow access to a specified multi-storey car
park in the city centre and are issued without charge to the member of
staff.

This does not include a small number allocated staff parking available at
smaller social housing locations. If you require details of these
locations please contact us again.

We aim to provide a high quality service to you and hope that you are
satisfied with this response. If you have any further questions please do
not hesitate to contact us.

Yours sincerely
