Harston scheme approved and other news

The County Council Economy and Environment Committee today gave final approval for the Harston pedestrian/cycle scheme. Funding has already been secured from the Department for Transport. Actual work will start next year – details to come.

The City Deal Board today was asked to consider part funding the Melbourn-Royston scheme. The reply was that funding bids for the overall scheme are already in the pipeline, but that the City Deal is fully supportive of the overall Cambridge-Royston scheme. I’ve requested a meeting with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership regarding funding for the Melbourn-Royston scheme and this will take place next month.
