Car parking on University central sites: Notice

The Finance Committee have agreed that the allocation of car park badges to Departments for 2000-01 should continue to be issued under the current policy which relates the number of badges issued to Departments to current staff numbers and site capacities.

Details of the criteria for the issue of badges from 1 October 2000 are as follows:

(i) The allocation of badges shall not exceed the ratio of 1.8:1 when measured against the parking capacity of any site.
(ii) The Finance Committee will adjust allocations where necessary to conform with the above ratio.
(iii) Heads of Departments will be responsible for the issue of badges according to Departmental allocation. It is suggested that the following criteria should normally be applied in the order specified. It is recognized however that Heads of Departments will use their own judgement in applying the criteria as appropriate:
(a) persons with a registered disability;
(b) persons with other medical or physical conditions which necessitate that they should park in close proximity to their place of work;
(c) persons whose work requires them to work unsocial hours or who have relevant family or other special domestic responsibilities;
(d) persons having a requirement to use a car for work purposes on a regular basis during the working day as an essential part of their duties;
(e) persons living outside the Cambridge City boundary who are prepared to undertake a formal car sharing arrangement;
(f) persons living outside the Cambridge City boundary;
(g) staff who are willing and able to park their vehicle at the University secure park and cycle facility and cycle or walk to their place of work (only those staff working on Central Sites are eligible).

Badges should not be issued to former members of staff or for use other than in connection with current University employment. Undergraduate and postgraduate students are not eligible for a badge except by qualification under (a) or (b) above.

The Finance Committee consider that able bodied persons who already have adequate parking facilities at a central College should normally be ineligible for a badge. For this purpose the term 'central College' excludes those Colleges which are inside the City boundaries but not situated in the central area, i.e. Churchill, Fitzwilliam, Homerton, Hughes Hall, Lucy Cavendish, New Hall, St Edmund's, and Wolfson. Girton College, which is outside the City boundary, is also excluded.
