The Updated Parking Policy for Residential Streets in Cambridge went to the County's Highways Committee for approval on 14th March 2017. Part A was approved - part B covering an accelerated programme for the city was deferred until the next meeting in July.

The Milton Road LLF resolutions were voted through in Dec 2016, reconfirmed in Feb 2017 and were to be presented to the City Deal Joint Assembly and Executive Board on the 1st and 8th of March 2017. This has now been postponed to the 7th and 15th June 2017. See the final 'Do-Optimum' alternative design.

Initial results of first four Local Liaison Forum workshops on the Milton Road project can be viewed HERE.  These and other representations were considered by the LLF committee to help formulate resolutions for presentation to the City Deal Assembly and Executive Board.

During workshop 5 an alternative 'Do-Optimum' design was presented by the newly-formed Milton Road Alliance consisting of HPERA, MRRA and CamCycle. The presentation can be viewed HERE. The concepts received high scores during the evaluation process, including a re-design of the Highworth/Elizabeth Way roundabout.

Resident Associations' resolutions put to the City Deal Executive Board following the LLF public meeting in September were accepted, resulting in a letter from the Board which can be read HERE.

  • Independent external consultants for public realm and landscaping
  • Avenue of trees and green verges to be a core design element of the scheme
  • No overlapping bus-lanes

Hurst Park Estate Residents' Association represents residents living in Hurst Park Avenue, Highfield Avenue, Orchard Avenue, Leys Avenue, Highworth Avenue, Leys Road and Mulberry Close  in Cambridge, UK.


The most pressing issue that the association is actively working on is the proposed changes to Milton Road, as part of the Greater Cambridge City Deal. See this part of our website for information and links.

The newly-formed Hurst Park Estate Residents’ Association is working hard to help our residents to be fully aware of the implications of these plans.
