Cabinet members of Fenland District Council have voted to “sacrifice” their reserved parking at Fenland Hall.

The proposal was put to colleagues by the recently appointed cabinet member for neighbourhood planning Will Sutton.

A council spokesman said: “It didn’t take them long to agree. The cabinet voted unanimously at their meeting last week to sacrifice their reserved car parking spaces at Fenland Hall.”

Cllr Sutton said that 95 per cent of the time the spaces were left empty.

“Cabinet members are no different to anyone else,” he said.

The signs on the four slots near the Civic Entrance have now been removed. One space remains reserved for the council’s chairman.
