Parking and congestion in Coleridge meeting

International restaurant chain TGI Fridays has submitted a planning application to build a new restaurant and play area filling the cobbled 'piazza' area of Cambridge Leisure Park.

Coleridge Labour party is strongly opposed to the plans. City Council candidate Rosy Moore commented:

"I think this is a terrible plan, it will feel enclosed and overcrowded if the restaurant is built which will spoil the feeling of the whole leisure park. It really needs more trees and maybe something that uses the outdoor space regularly, like a market, street food festival, volleyball court, rollerskating rink, big screen showing the olympics.... anything that keeps the outdoor space really."

Residents are also opposed to the plans. Roger Crabtree, Chair of the Rustat Neighbourhood Association said:

"We are simply appalled at this proposal. To remove some 30% of the existing open space is completely inappropriate and contrary to the original concept of a ‘piazza’ where people can congregate and socialise. It is the only open space in the area, two of the major nearby development, the Marque and the Belvedere being gated communities.

We have more than enough restaurants on this site already. Rather than coming up with crazy ideas to make more money, the owners should be fulfilling their original brief to make the area more attractive and hold events there."

You can view and comment on the proposed plans on the city council website: 16/0594/FUL.
