We live in centre f Ely and there is n parking with ur prperty. We were using Iceland's back yard t park ur car, but that has been restricted.

We then parked ur car in Newnham Street in the lng-stay parking zne (Paradise Centre). On Friday afternn, we needed g t hspital and fund a parking penalty n ur vehicle.

My husband is wrking in Cambridge and has a cmpany car. I am wrking part-time and the rest f time I am at hme with tw kids. I take my child t schl (breakfast club) and then I am back by 8am. Nanny cmes at 11am and then I am ff t my jb.

With these new parking rules, I need t mve my car between 8am and 10:00am, frm Mnday t Saturday. I am unable t d that because I am at hme with a little child, and I will need my car later.

We tried t cntact the cuncil abut this matter, but have had n respnse frm them.

We are paying Cuncil Tax s surely the cuncil culd manage t give residents sme parking space withut penalising them.

When I read in the lcal newspapers abut up t 10 cars a week being stlen, brken in and vandalised, I wrry abut the safety f my car. Are we safe in ur cmmunity? D we have a right t prtect ur belngings and prperty?

Seems like the cuncil cares mre abut visitrs than residents... shame.
