A refurbished High Street car park in Melbourn has been officially opened.
The car park – which has been remodelled to avoid the threat of flooding – was given the ribbon and scissors treatment by Melbourn Parish Council chairman Bob Tulloch, Melbourn Car Park committee chairman Mike Linette and Sarah Adam – who takes up her role as parish council clerk today.
As well as providing a dedicated ‘safe road to school’ separating pedestrians from traffic, the car park has had new lighting and CCTV to clamp down on anti-social behaviour.
A parish council spokesman said: “We are delighted to have an asset which will enhance the centre of our village for many years to come.
“In the past there has also been a few instances of irresponsible driving behaviour, but this will be curtailed by speed bumps and kerbs separating the parking lanes.”

There had been calls to improve the car park after reports of it being used as a gathering place for younger people to drink alcohol, leading to delinquent acts such as throwing litter over garden fences.
