Dear Cambridge City Council,

There is a small sign on Windsor Road, Cambridge, which says, "Parking of vehicles on the grass verges in this road is an offence under a city bye-law." I am interested in this bye-law and any similar ones in Cambridge.

Please could you tell me if the bye-law mentioned by the sign is still in force? If it is, please could I have a copy of the instrument containing that bye-law, along with copies of any instrument that has amended or revoked that first instrument (in whole or in part)?

Finally, if there are similar bye-laws covering other parts of the City (for instance, I understand that there is one covering Mowbray Road and Fendon Road), please could you send me the same information in respect of them?

Thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Harris

Wendy Young, Cambridge City Council
