Yet again council plans include construction on Parker's Piece!

I wonder whether you have seen a City Council consultation regarding 
increased cycle parking around the city. From our point of view this 
is mostly not contentious, but we do object to plans to add cycle 
racks on an area of fenced off grass on the corner of Parker's Piece 
near the University Arms hotel:  http://goo.gl/maps/VFtyP

The plans are on page 15 of this document:
https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/sites/www.cambridge.gov.uk/files/documents/city-centre-cycle-parking-consultation-maps.pdf

This location is billed as Regent Terrace but is actually a fenced 
off area of the piece. We suggest that this is very undesirable as it 
will use up more precious green space.

Better locations nearby would surely be on existing tarmac in Park 
Terrace  http://goo.gl/maps/LCKp9 or in Regent Terrace itself or even 
outside the Police Station on Parkside?

There is an online survey if you feel like responding to the 
consultation, the area we have concerns over is "Regent Terrace, 
location one" in this consultation survey:

The survey closes Friday 23rd.

Best wishes,
