Great news. The City Council has heeded residents' requests:
Although this Peterborough City Council consultation has only been sent to some residents of East of England Way, I feel that everyone who lives on the Orton Northgate estate should have their say.
Peterborough City Council is proposing to introduce new parking restrictions along part of East of England way. This is welcome, as it will prevent the kind of anti-social parking that residents of that street have been forced to tolerate for way too long now. In particular, large vehicles that have arrived 24 hours early to visit the Showground have been parking up on East of England Way, making it more difficult for residents, bin lorries and emergency vehicles to access this part of the Northgate estate.
The council has supplied a map as shown below.

While the introduction of the proposed 'No Waiting At Any Time' zone is welcomed, many residents feel that it extends too far into the residential part of East of England way.
If you are a resident of Orton Northgate, you may wish to support East of England Way residents by responding to the consultation to indicate that you strongly disagree with the proposal because you feel the suggested area is not correct. Contrary to the city council's suggestion, residents feel that the zone should end just past the turning into the Holiday Inn and not extend into the residential area. It would also be helpful if the zone extended down Joseph Odam Way down to the junction with Oundle Road.
I urge everyone who lives in Orton Northgate to respond to this consultation.

If you're pushed for time, you may wish to take advantage of this letter template that I have produced. Do personalise it and include any additional comments that you wish to make.
- That the area does not extend into the residential part of East of England Way. Rather that it terminates immediately after the right turn into the Holiday Inn Express.
- That the area is extended to include Joseph Odam Way, which is the road that links East of England Way to Oundle Road. Joseph Odam Way is the sole access road to the Orton Northgate Estate.
