Melbourn-Royston Cycle Bridge & Melbourn Greenway Consultation now live

We’re delighted to let you know that the ‘Melbourn Greenway’ consultation is now open.

As you are no doubt aware, this is our best opportunity to achieve a Melbourn to Royston cycle link by means of a path along the A10 and a bridge over the A505 – something we’ve been campaigning for, for many years.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership Greenways project consists of 12 individual schemes of which the Melbourn Greenway is one.  All the other schemes have seen very high consultation response rates.   A GCP meeting in December will prioritize schemes for funding, so it’s very important that the Melbourn Greenway scheme sees the highest response rate of all: we’re aiming for 1000 responses. So we really need you to respond, and for you to persuade your friends, family and colleagues to respond as well.

The consultation closes on August 5th.

We’ve produced a document to link you to the Melbourn Greenway consultation, with some suggested responses: please find it to view or download here.
