Representation 14066 on Issues and Options Report by Mr Richard Taylor

Support / Object: SUPPORT
Document Link: Issues and Options Report - Question 10.50
Representation: Planning policy should reflect the fact a certain fraction of graduate students want and have a need for, cars.

Original submission

Often during planning debates there is a lack of clarity about who graduate students are and what they do, particularly when parking is discussed. If think it is important that planning policy does not deny trainee teachers living in the city and travelling well out of Cambridge on placements, and trainee doctors with placements all over the region, or those working in other fields with a need for a car the ability to have and use one practically. There is often incorrect information presented to committees considering applications for student housing on the University of Cambridge's and its colleges' rules for graduate students on car use/ownership. I do not think students should be discriminated against simply because they are labelled "students" rather than say "apprentices" or "trainees". Planning policy should reflect the fact a certain fraction of graduate students want and have a need for, cars.
