East Cambridgeshire District Council yesterday gave the go ahead to clear a piece of land they purchased last year behind Tesco to serve as more parking spaces in Ely and to commuters.
The land on The Dock will park up to 128 cars including 8 disabled bays and 2 electrical charging points.
It is thought a suitable walk-through to Ely Station will be provided and maybe along the red line shown on the image below.
Leading the way on this project is Councillor Bill Hunt and he is keen to get the project started according to councillors this evening.
Parking will not be free but the plan is to make it half the price of parking at the train station and around the same price as Angel Drove.
