  • Continuation of riverside route from Racecourse to Cop & Dee Path

    Created by Simon B // 1 thread

    Adjacent to existing apartments on Sealand Road near the Cop is a new development currently under construction by Watkins Homes Ltd. Curently there is a barriered-off ramped access to Sealand Road to cross the Canal entrance to the river that leads around the exisiting apartments. This was originally envisaged as part of a continuous shared use riverside route.

    The development of the site offers the opportunity to ensure that shared use access can be maintained, developed and improved along the riverside route that skirts the perimiter of the Racecourse and continues to the River Dee path that leads to Garden City and Queensferry. This could be before residents purchase properties who could well be resistant to a pathway near their new homes.

    Whilst the access to the River Dee from the Shropshire Union Canal presents a barrier to a straightforward continuation of the riverside route to join the River Dee shared use path into Wales, the creation of a small extension around the permiter of the new development under construction would mean that an attractive continuous offroad route could be created with minimal additional works (widening of the existing footway for approximately 100mtrs).

    It would be helpful to gather thoughts and ideas before the developers and Planning and Highways Department of the Local Authority are approached about this opportunity

  • Cambridgeshire Area Greenways Repot

    Created by Jim Chisholm // 7 threads

    Nigel Brigham has produced a report for the County which reviews existing links out to villages, and suggests improvements that would provide better standard links away from busy roads. I gather it is hoped that some money may be available from the City Deal especially for bits that could be delivered early. The link to the report on the County Council website is below

    I suggest an issue for each route:
    Waterbeach, Horningsea, Swaffams, Bottisham, Cherry Hinton, Linton, Sawston, Melbourn, Haslingfield, Barton, Comberton, St Ives
